Emerging Contemporaries is the Craft ACT National Award Exhibition for early-career artists. This exhibition plays a pivotal role in supporting and transitioning artists into professional practice and placing Australian artists in view of the national cultural collecting institutions, business and industry, and audience.

We're always looking for new talent to nurture and add to our Craft ACT community. We have an Emerging Contemporaries Award that we give to emerging talent from a number of sources: Sturt School for Wood, Canberra Potters Society, Canberra Institute of Technology, University of Canberra, the ANU School of Art + Design, University of New South Wales and the CAPO Craft ACT Emerging Artist award.
