The 2018 Creative Challenge

The Australian Community Creative Challenge was first held in 2013 to recognize the diversity of Australian artistic talent living and working in the Greater New York area.

TheĀ Challenge for creative Australians living in New York is to create a body of work – using any medium – that encompasses three elements: Australia, Community and New York.

“Art is very subjective, so the winner will be decided by popular vote from amongst the thousands of our members living in New York” says James Boland, the Founder and President of The Australian Community.

Our 2017 Winner was Kurt Sneddon with “Australian Flag Raising NYC”


“This competition is an opportunity for any Australian artist living in the Greater New York area to receive recognition from other Australians, no matter what art medium they choose” says James.
