The Incinerator Art Award is Incinerator Gallery’s annual contemporary art prize featuring 28 artworks by shortlisted artists from across Australia, inspired by the theme of art for social change.

Now in its ninth year, the award pays homage to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin, who believed that art and architecture practices are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change.
