IMAGinE awards 2019

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.

The 2019 award categories are:

  • Exhibitions Projects
  • Engagement Programs
  • Capacity Building, Capital & Sustainability Programs
  • Individual Achievement
  • The ACHAA Award for Excellence

The ACHAA Award for Excellence will be awarded this year to an individual for outstanding contribution to Aboriginal arts, culture and/or heritage in NSW.
