MALKA ART PRIZE

The Malka Aboriginal Art Prize was initiated by the late Mr. Marvin McKenzie Senior, whose vision was to have an Aboriginal Art Show, providing Aboriginal community members with a space to showcase their work.

‘Malka’ is a word used by several Aboriginal language groups in the Port Augusta region, meaning mark or painting.

2023 will be the 14th year the Malka Aboriginal Art Prize has been held.

  • 2023 Malka Grand Prize – $20,000 (Mr. Marvin McKenzie Senior Award) – sponsored by the Bungala Solar Farm (Sustainability Arts Partner 2023).
