Due to Covid-19 restrictions on gallery operations and in response to our need to keep the community safe, there will not be a public opening of the Incinerator Art Award in 2020. In its place, a video announcement of the winners will be available online via the gallery website. The exhibition featuring many of the finalists will be open from 28 August to 1 November. Two award recipients will secure an opportunity to present a solo exhibition at the Incinerator Gallery in 2021 along with a $4,000 artist fee.

A People’s Choice Award of $1000 will also be awarded at the conclusion of the exhibition.
