National Contemporary Jewellery Award 2018

The National Contemporary Jewellery Award is Griffith Regional Art Gallery’s flagship biennial acquisitive award. Acquisitions from the award develop the National Contemporary Jewellery Collection, now in its 30th year.
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery presents the National Emerging Art Glass Prize, an acquisitive, biennial national competition established to promote innovation and excellence in contemporary glass - this will be exhibiting at the same time. Find out more about the NEAGP here. We will be exhibiting Wagga Wagga's National Emerging Art Glass Prize at the same time as the National Contemporary Jewellery Award exhibition.
