WAIAA, the richest Indigenous arts prize in the country, is a national award to celebrate the breadth, diversity and excellence of art from all corners of Indigenous Australia. The awards acknowledge the significant and ongoing contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists make to Australian art, culture and society.

The $50,000 Western Australian Indigenous Art Award will be awarded to the artist whose work in the awards exhibition is considered by the selection panel to be the most outstanding. The winner of this award will be announced at the opening event on Thursday 22 August 2013.

Yhonnie will also be delivering an artist talk on Saturday 24 August at 10am at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
