Established in 2000, through the initiative and generosity of Ballarat South Rotary Club and ongoing support of the local community, Ballarat Arts Foundation (BAF) has continued to assist and encourage the aspirations of local, emerging contemporary artists who have lived, worked or studied in the regional city of Ballarat, providing grants and support services in the form of concerts, exhibitions, master classes and networking opportunities.
Having granted awards to a broad range of talented artists in a wide variety of disciplines in the visual and performing arts, BAF has enabled a broad spectrum of local contemporary artists to develop and advance their careers to higher national and international levels.
The $500 People's Choice Award winner will be announced at the conclusion of Ballarat Arts Foundation Eureka Art Award exhibition.
