Perspective: The Queensland Regional Arts Awards (QRAA)

Flying Arts Alliance

The Queensland Regional Art Awards (QRAA) is an annual visual arts prize and exhibition for established and emerging artists living in regional and remote Queensland. The program aims to provide a platform for further professional development.

The 2023 QRAA explored the concept of ‘Perspective’, calling artists to enter work which considers the concept of perspective in its many facets, viewpoints and nuances. The theme plays on a term known in the visual arts and relevant to our modern society.
