The BigCi Environmental Awards 2018

Apply here

Deadline: 1st June 2018


Australian and International Artists from various fields – visual art, installation, multimedia, performance, literature, music, photography, film making, curating – are invited to submit entries for the BigCi Environmental Awards 2018.

The two winning artists will each receive (4) free weeks of BigCi residency and AUD$2,000 spending money. In addition to that, up to AUD$2,000 in flight travel subsidy will be shared between the two winners.


Your submission must show how you will respond to the environment around BigCi.
BigCi is located only 1.5 hours drive from Sydney, Australia’s biggest city, yet it is in a dramatically different world – on the edge of the Wollemi National Park in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains. This is an area of stunning scenic beauty, with its own unique flora, fauna and geomorphology.
For your project during the BigCi residency, you can choose to deal with particular environmental or natural science issues, explore ideas and concepts related to nature or use this opportunity to creatively respond to the unique wilderness on our doorstep.
The focus of the Award is on the environment, but this is open to a wide range of interpretations, allowing you to work on issues that are of most interest to you and fit best with your artistic practice.
As a winner of the award, you will have an opportunity to explore the Wollemi, the Blue Mountains and the Gardens of Stone National Parks on guided walks and will be given research assistance relevant to your project.
At the end of the residency, the award winners will present their work at BigCi Open Day.
