Australian Fibre Art Award (AFAA)


The Australian Fibre Art Award is a biennial juried non-acquisitive award of $2000 being run, for the first time, in 2021.


Contemporary fibre artists, working in any style of media, from across Australia are invited to enter.


The artworks chosen as finalists will be exhibited in an exhibition in 2021 as well as being part of a limited-edition accompanying book.


In addition to the $2000 AFAA, sponsored by ArtWear Publications, there are currently two other non-acquisitive prizes, each of $500 – 


  1. Judges’ Highly Commended (Sponsor to be announced)
  2. Viewers’ Choice (Sponsor to be announced ).


Important Dates :

As we are currently in the early days of arranging the award and the exhibition thereof, the entry and exhibition dates have yet to be determined. At the moment, mid 2021 looks to be the entry date, and later in 2021 to be the exhibition ☺.
