Australian Muslim Artists (AMA) Art Prize was born in 2019 from the success of the AMA exhibition established five years earlier. The annual shortlisted showcase aims to bring together artists whose varied approaches to visual and Islamic art forms convey the creative breadth and cultural diversity of Muslim artists. An acquisitive cash prize, sponsored by La Trobe University, is awarded to the winning artist.
AMA continues to support contemporary artists by offering an opportunity to present their work in a professional environment, in line with the Museum’s mission and vision.
