Elliott Award

The Elliott Award is to recognise 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 identified for;
  • their length of service to the arts
  • the breadth of their contribution
  • the encouragement and nurturing of children and youth in arts practice
  • the championing of arts involvement to the broader community
  • the creation of a significant positive community legacy to the development of the arts in our community.
The Elliott Award has previously been awarded to;

The Elliott Award was founded by the Mildura Arts and Culture Board (2004 –13) and in 2014 the Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee committed to continuing their legacy of acknowledging the passion and commitment to arts and culture in our community by those whose dedication and contributions may otherwise go unnoticed.
The Elliott Award will be selected by Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee and awarded and announced later this year.
