Are you an artist in the Northern Rivers? Now is the time to get your art ready and submitted to the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre’s coveted biennial Wollumbin Art Award (WAA). 

The opportunity to enter has now been extended to residents of the Richmond Valley Council area. 

The award, named after the sacred mountain which the Gallery overlooks, is open to artists living across the Northern Rivers in Tweed, Byron, Ballina, Lismore and Kyogle shires as well as from the Scenic Rim and City of Gold Coast. 

Gallery Director Ingrid Hedgcock said the calibre of works showcased in the last Award exhibition was remarkable and gave insight into the diversity of practice across the region.

Artists can submit up to two entries of any subject matter and medium. Award categories include a First Prize of $15,000 and a two-week residency in the Gallery’s Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Studio; a $10,000 WAA Bundjalung Award for First Nations artists and a solo exhibition in the Gallery.

Unique warehouse company award

The contemporary art award TERRADA ART AWARD is designed to support emerging artists. Every two years, the jury carefully reviews the artists’ work and exhibition proposals before selecting the finalists. Over 1000 artists applied for the award last year, and five finalists were selected on September 11, 2023, approximately ten months after the application process started.

While there are plenty of public art competitions and awards, the TERRADA ART AWARD is unique to its founder, Warehouse TERRADA. There is no “Grand Prix” or ranking among the selected artists, but instead, a Jury Award is given to each finalist. Each jury member selects one artist and gives them feedback on their work, advice, and a message expressing their expectations for the future.
