This was the second year of the Seppelt Contemporary Art Award, recognising excellence and innovation in contemporary Australian and New Zealand visual art and design. The Seppelt Awards included Environmental Design and Object Design, as well as Visual Art. These categories, broadly defined, covered the wide spectrum of visual practice, from painting and photography, architecture and landscape design, to fashion and crafted objects.
More than 190 nominations were received, from which the work of nine artists/practitioners was selected for the exhibition. The exhibitors came from Victoria, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia, the Northern Territory and New Zealand.
