Together with The Ian Potter Cultural Trust, we invite artists to apply for Australia's most significant commission for moving image art. The successful artist receives $100,000 from The Ian Potter Cultural Trust and professional support from our curators including highly specialised curatorial, production and presentation expertise.

The commissioned work will premiere at ACMI in 2022 and will be accessioned to the ACMI Collection, joining past works Gabriella Hirst's Darling Darling, Angelica Mesiti's The Calling and Daniel Crooks' Phantom Ride.

Chaired by ACMI Director and CEO Katrina Sedgwick, the judging panel includes experts drawn from across the Australian arts sector, including creative producer, programmer and the Creative Director of Asia TOPA Stephen Armstrong; award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Santilla Chingaipe; Director of the Samstag Museum of Art Erica Green; NGV Curator, Indigenous Art Hannah Presley and artist Daniel von Sturmer and CEO of The Ian Potter Cultural Trust and The Ian Potter Foundation Craig Connelly.
