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 will receive $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 2020 and will be accessioned to the ACMI Collection, joining past works 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 Craig Connelly, CEO of The Ian Potter Cultural Trust and The Ian Potter Foundation, Annette Blonski, freelance script editor and script consultant, Rebecca Coates, curator, writer and lecturer, Darren Dale, Director of Blackfella Films, Callum Morton, Professor of Fine Art at MADA (Monash Art Design and Architecture) and Emily Sexton, Artistic Director of Arts House.
