In 2011 artsHub launched the inaugural artsHub Awards. We received a great response with 72 shortlisted finalists and the 6 winners were announced in December 2011. Developed to recognise those who create and support work that is exciting, engaging, challenging or simply excellent and to offer recognition of unique and upcoming Australian artists, the artsHub Awards aim to encourage and recognise creativity and achievement in all areas of the arts.
In the 2011 awards, we had a high standard of entrants ranging from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, who took home the award for Achievement in the Arts for its Beethoven Festival, to smaller organisations and individuals such as Leigh Pyman who won the People’s Choice award for Innovation for interactive learning resource Phonetic Pillows, which assists students to physically explore speech sounds.
The EIGHT categories for the 2012 artsHub Awards are as follows:

Parkers established in 1918 is an old family business meeting the art material needs of artists.
6 years ago we expanded to our Redfern Framing Workshop where we do all our framing, large-scale stretching as well as a small art material outlet.
With a demand for art materials in East Sydney, opportunity arose for Parkers to open a new store in Darlinghurst.
The shop is in the grounds of the National Art School. With a shared history and a respect for tradition, we believe this to be an ideal location.
Parkers Darlinghurst will be a public shop where all are welcome with a select range of our main shop Parkers in the Rocks.
