IMAGinE awards 2018

The IMAGinE awards recognise the people who work in museums and galleries across NSW and the contributions they make. IMAGinE celebrates all institutions and pays homage to those organisations run by volunteers, with limited budgets and minimal resources. These awards offer a unique opportunity for museums and galleries in NSW to advocate, promote their achievements and raise their profile within the sector and the broader community.

Nominations for the IMAGinE awards 2018 have closed, view the final list of nominees.


The 2018 award categories are:

  • Exhibitions Projects
  • Engagement Programs
  • Capacity Building, Capital & Sustainability Programs
  • Individual Achievement

We are also excited to announce the inaugural ACHAA Award for Excellence by an Aboriginal Curator.
