The Art Awards provide a special opportunity for our community to connect and engage with the Arts, and celebrate the City of Belmont as a place of creativity and culture.
Each year the City invites artist’s across the state to submit their artwork, welcoming a variety of artistic mediums and styles including drawings, paintings, photography, textiles, sculptures and ceramics. The Awards are open to artists of all ages, featuring a diverse mix of youth, emerging talent and established art professionals.
Held over two weeks, the Awards showcase the talent in our local community and broader arts sector, while supporting artists to create new works that ignite the imagination, tell our unique stories, and foster connections.
The event aspires to be innovative, creative, and progressive. Art is a great connector, helping us understand different perspectives and build bridges, while contributing to the health, wellbeing, and general life satisfaction of our residents.

The 2023 Art Awards were held from 2 September to 16 September 2023, and featured 299 pieces of unique, original artwork from across the state.
The Art Awards Mentorship Prize was established to provide development opportunities and nurture emerging artistic talents in the community.
The program sees an established professional artist paired with a mentee selected from the self-nominated Art Awards participants.
Held in The Glasshouse, the free two-week exhibition provides an opportunity for the community to explore the artworks, engage with the community, and purchase a work of art of their own.
The Art Awards attract the interest of a broad cross section of the community including WA Artists, local residents, youth and arts patrons.
The Art Award Public Programs deliver a range of educational, informative and fun sessions leading up to and during the exhibition.
Workshops and accessibility tours have been designed to provide professional development opportunities for emerging artists and greater appreciation of the works on display.
For many exhibitors, the Art Awards is their first opportunity to show artwork in a public setting. For others, it is an opportunity to share their stories, show their skills and progress their careers.
