On the night the major prize winner, winner of the LEAP Acquisitive, and the recipient of the new TREAT commission will be announced, and you’ll be able to cast your vote for this year’s People’s Choice Award sponsored by Arts Assist. 

The event will open with a Smoking Ceremony and Acknowledgement of Country, and after the winners are announced there will be an all-out celebration with sumptuous food, drinks and DJ to enjoy while you view the art and socialise. We encourage you to bring a friend and make a night of it!
