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.

Six shortlisted artists will be displayed in an exhibition at Bayside Gallery (2 July – 28 August) – Corner Wilson and Carpenter Street, Brighton. This year’s finalists are Moorina Bonini, Elham Eshraghian-Haakansson, Hannah Gartside, Nadia Hernández, Annika Romeyn and Emma Singer.   

The award will be judged by renowned industry experts: Artistic Director & CEO, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) Max Delany, and Associate Provost at the University of Melbourne, Professor Marcia Langton AM and the winner will be announced at the opening event on 2 July 2022.
