Cayte Latta Memorial Award for Visual Art

Ash Golsby_TransitoryAre you a visual artist? Have you created an artwork with a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersex  (LGBTI) theme? Then you could be in the running for a $1000 cash prize at this year’s Honour Awards.

The visual arts category called the Cayte Latta Memorial Award for Visual Art includes a $1000 cash prize made possible by an endowment from the Friends of Cayte. Cayte was an accomplished photographer, artist, filmmaker, social activist, and leading LGBTI community figure for over two decades until her passing in 2010.

Named in her honour, the award recognises visual art that expresses, interprets or explores issues or themes affecting the LGBTI community. Eligible mediums are: photography, painting, drawing, video, filmmaking, printmaking or graphic design. The award is a national award and is open to all residents of Australia.

Artists can submit entries of previous work or work specifically created for the Award. Only an image of the artwork is required. Images should be uploaded at time of submission or a link should be provided under the Supporting Statement section of the online nomination form.

Nominations are free and can be submitted by the actual artist or on behalf of the artist by a friend or admirer. Winners receive a range of gifts, and all finalists receive a ticket to the gala event. Nominations close at 5.00pm on Wednesday 26 August 2015.

Now in its ninth year, the Honour Awards is an annual gala charity fundraiser celebrating service to and achievements within NSW’s LGBTI community and supporting ACON and the Aurora Group.
