On Friday the 20th November 2020 Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre was proud to host the 45th annual Katherine Art Prize. The night was extra special as it was our chance to pay homage and respect to the Lambert Family who have always been the contributors of the main prize money for the Katherine Prize. What better way to honor them then by calling our lower gallery space the ‘Lambert Gallery’ and putting up a bright neon sign stating as such!
The winners of the night were:
‘Out of Darkness – Bush Cockroach’ by Katie Bradley who won the Lambert Prize of $5,000
‘Oceans Ghosts’ By Aly de Groot who won the Katherine Town Council Prize of $2,000
‘Wild flowers’ By Jasmine Glass who won the Children / Youth Art prize.
Congratulations to all of the winners.

With just under 100 entries all up it is one of the largest Katherine Prizes to date. On behalf of the Members of the Board, the staff and crew here at Godinymayin would like to thank the Lambert Family for their dedication and support of this prize over the years. Your generosity and input is certainly appreciated.
