The Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award is a biennial acquisitive award & exhibition celebrating the diversity and strength of Australia’s textile artistry.

This biennial nationally significant award has been presented by Wangaratta Art Gallery since 2009, and will again be a showcase of textile artistry and talent from across Australia. Wangaratta has a long and prominent history of textiles, both in manufacturing and as a craft form. Wangaratta Art Gallery builds upon this unique tradition through the presentation of this outstanding award which continues to recognise the high calibre practice that Australian artists provide to the national and international textile tableau.

This award is committed to the advancement and growth of contemporary textiles, it is an acquisitive award that embodies the current state of play for contemporary textile practice in Australia.


Landline is celebrating 30 years on ABC TV and we want you to help us mark the occasion.

We're making a commemorative quilt from squares created by you.

The theme is Life on the Land, which could mean animals, vehicles, landscapes — whatever regional and rural life means to you.
