The Ellen José Art Award for young women is a unique triennial award, the first of its kind, encompassing a $15,000 non-acquisitive prize, designed to support young female artists in the early stages of their career.

The award is a partnership between The Ellen José Memorial Foundation and Bayside City Council, held in honour of Ellen José (1951 – 2017), a pioneering indigenous artist, radical activist and social justice campaigner who lived in the Bayside suburb of Black Rock for over 25 years.

This exhibition (2 July – 28 August 2022) brings together six finalists from across the nation: Moorina Bonini, Elham Eshraghian-Haakansson, Hannah Gartside, Nadia Hernández, Annika Romeyn and Emma Singer.
