2020 Elliott Award Nominations open at Mildura

Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee is seeking nominations for the 2020 Elliott Award.

The Elliott Award recognises an outstanding contribution to the arts in our community, particularly where that contribution has not previously been formally acknowledged.

Previous recipients of the award have been recognised for:

  • length of service to the arts
  • breadth of their contribution throughout the term of their involvement in the arts
  • encouragement and nurturing of children and youth in arts practice
  • championing of arts involvement to the broader community
  • creation of a significant positive community legacy to the development of the arts in our community.

Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee Chair Donald Mayne encourages local residents to nominate someone they believe is deserving of recognition.

“We are very fortunate to have a vibrant arts community in our region,” Mr Mayne said.

“Whether performing or visual arts, there are many people who have dedicated countless hours to passing on their knowledge and supporting the industry, or simply artists who have contributed significantly through their own practice.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to recognise those individuals who contribute significantly to our community.”

The Elliott Award was founded by the Mildura Arts and Culture Board (2004-13) and from 2014, has continued under the guidance of the Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee.

Previous winners include Des Tobin (2006), Tom McCullough (2007), Vaughan Stirrat (2008), Neil Noyce (2009), Mollie Kalms (2010), Shirley Bowie (2011), Neil Fettling (2012) Kay Sylvester (2013), Peta‑Lynne Buchanan and Janine Kerr (2014), Leonard (Len) Krause (2015), Yvonne Hedley (2016), Henry Tankard (2017), Mavis Francis (2018) and in 2019, David Searle.
