Walkley Arts Awards Judging Criteria

Judging Criteria:

  • Originality
  • Research
  • Storytelling ability
  • Accuracy and ethics
  • Excellent use of the medium/media
  • Insight
  • Knowledge of their given area
  • Ability to convey a specialisation to a general audience and explore in depth for a specialist audience.
  • Contextualisation of culture — both in terms of when/where works were created and when/where they’re being consumed. It’s a fundamental question of criticism — how do these works fit into our culture?
