The Queensland Regional Art Awards is an annual visual arts prize and exhibition for established and emerging artists living in regional and remote Queensland.
The Awards bring visual artists together from around Queensland to showcase, support and celebrate regional arts and artists and the extraordinary places in which they live.
In 2022, the QRAA is an invitation to explore the concept of ‘Reframe’, calling artists to enter work that draws upon experiences and observations, reflecting upon the past year or two and responding to our changing world. ‘Reframe’ is an opportunity to see our current situation from a different perspective, to inspire problem solving and decision making and apply learning, whilst constructively responding, shifting and evolving.
