The Victorian Craft Awards is a biennial event facilitated by Craft Victoria and supported by the state government. Established in 2015, the Awards present and celebrate excellence in contemporary craft practice and welcome applications from emerging, mid-career and established craftspeople across the state of Victoria. The Awards play an essential role in delivering a focused, peer-reviewed opportunity for makers and collectors, and present a broad snapshot of the vitality of contemporary Victorian craft. 

Applications of individual works and installations utilising craft skills, processes and materials are welcome. Up to 100 artists are selected for an exhibition of finalists held at Craft.
