Mildura Arts & Culture Advisory Committee


The Elliott Award 
 
The Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee is inviting nominations for the 2021 Elliott Award.

Nomination Form - Nominations close 4pm, Friday 1 October
 
The annual Elliott Award recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the arts in our community, particularly where that contribution has not previously been formally acknowledged.

The Award was founded by the Mildura Arts and Culture Board (2004–2013). In 2014, the Mildura Arts and Culture Advisory Committee continued this commitment in acknowledging those whose passion, commitment, dedication and contributions to arts and culture in our community that may otherwise go unrecognised.

Past recipients of the Elliott Award have been recognised for their length of service to the arts and breadth of their contribution throughout the term of their involvement in the arts; the encouragement and nurturing of children and youth in arts practice; the championing of arts involvement to the broader community; and the creation of a significant positive community legacy in the development of the arts in our community.
