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.
