Established in 2008, the IMAGinE Awards celebrate the achievements and extraordinary diversity of the NSW museum and gallery sector and those who work within it, both paid and volunteer. An initiative of Museums & Galleries NSW, they have been developed in collaboration with the Local Government Association of NSW and Shires Association of NSW, Regional & Public Galleries NSW and Museums Australia NSW.

The IMAGinE awards are made possible by the support of the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. The IMAGinE awards are administered by Museums & Galleries NSW which is assisted by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
