Established by Craft Victoria in 2015, the Victorian Craft Awards is a biennial event presenting and celebrating excellence in contemporary craft practice. The Awards showcase exceptional works utilising craft skills, processes and materials and include emerging, mid-career and established craftspeople from across Victoria.  

Please note, that we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 Awards exhibition and judging until April 2022. This was in response to the Victorian Government’s extension to the COVID-19 lockdown across metropolitan Melbourne. We are passionate about and committed to our artists, makers and designers. We extend our gratitude to them and our generous supporters for their understanding.
