Among the winners are a quirky project which saw specially-knitted items secretly placed on Melbourne trams by guerrilla craftworkers as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

In Queensland, the Brisbane Airports corporation partnership with the Institute of Modern Art has been named as a finalist in the national-only category. The partnership is said to reinvigorated the annual New Fresh Cut exhibition and boost career opportunities for emerging artists.

In South Australia the AbaF Giving Award went to Tracks Dance and Lajamanu Management Committee for a strong, long term relationship that results in the Milpirri Festival for people in the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory.

In Western Australia, Rio Tinto was a double winner in the Awards. Cultural organisation DADAA (Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts Australia) also won two awards – one in partnership with Rio Tinto and one with the City of Swan and Midland Redevelopment Authority.

Rio Tinto’s second win came through a partnership with the Michael Leslie Foundation for the Arts to bring festivals, dance and arts workshops to children in the Pilbara.

Two partnerships in Tasmania will go into the national finals -Tasmanian Regional Arts and RACT Insurance and Australia Council Young and Emerging Artist Award.
