The Malka Aboriginal Art Prize was initiated by the late Mr Marvin McKenzie Senior, whose vision was to have an Aboriginal art show which ensured the Aboriginal community would have a space to showcase their work.

‘Malka’ is a word used by several Aboriginal language groups within the Port Augusta region, meaning mark or painting.

In 2024 it will be the 15th year the Aboriginal Art Prize has been held.

Prize money information will be released soon
