Arts Alumni Awards

Recognising alumni who have achieved excellence

Do you know an outstanding Arts alumnus making a difference locally or internationally? The annual Arts Alumni Awards recognise and honour alumni who have achieved excellence in their chosen field, contributing to the Faculty, the University or their communities through their endeavours.

Whether it be a high profile candidate on the world stage or a quiet achiever making a difference locally, we look forward to hearing about what our Arts Alumni have been up to since graduating.

Nominations for the 2022 Arts Alumni Awards are now closed.
