The Incinerator Art Award is the Gallery’s annual contemporary art prize of national significance, with entries received from across Australia. The award showcases 28 shortlisted works inspired by the theme of art for social change.

The award pays homage to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, who believed that art and architecture practices are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change.

The Incinerator Art Award was judged by Kate Just (Artist and Lecturer in Art at the Victorian College of the Arts), Tom Mosby (CEO of the Koorie Heritage Trust) and Madé Spencer-Castle (Curator at Centre for Contemporary Photography).

The $10,000 Boathouse award was awarded to Ash Perry for his work, Country Observes and $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award was awarded to Amala Groom for her work, The Visibility of Blackness.

The Boathouse is the proud sponsor of the Incinerator Art Award.
