Awards and Scholarships
Stella Young Award
We cherish the memory of our collaborator Stella Young and honour her by awarding a young Australian disabled artist each year with $3,000.
This is a great opportunity for disabled artists aged 16 – 30 to be recognised for their impact on disability activism and culture through their artistic practice in comedy, performing arts or screen culture.
The Stella Young Award recognises Stella’s impact on society through her early work with Disability Media Australia. In particular, the program ‘No Limits’, which challenged the representation of disability in Australian screen. As Stella said, “You get proud by practicing”.
The award is made possible by the amazing work and legacy of Disability Media Australia (formerly Grit Media). We thank everyone involved with the organisation and those involved in the production of ‘No Limits’.
