The 12th Annual Arts Academy Awards

The 12th Annual Arts Academy Awards

On Saturday 17 September, the Australian School of the Arts will present the 12th Arts Academy Awards at the Sheldon Event Centre.

This prestigious event recognises the best of Sheldon College student works across all Senior College art forms and will again feature the award ceremony for the student nominees from Visual Art, Music, Vocal Studies, Acting, Dance and Film and Television. We invite you to ‘dress to impress’ in your best evening wear and join us for a night of food, celebration and entertainment as we present our outstanding performances and celebrate the great work of our artists. Congratulations to our 2016 Arts Academy Award Nominees. We would also like to recognise all of the talented Arts students who missed out this year, we are all very proud of you and your work and efforts have not gone unnoticed.


The evening will begin with doors opening at 6pm in the Sheldon Event Centre where you will enjoy drinks on arrival and a selection of ‘Mini Entrée Appetisers’ as our 2016 Award Nominees arrive via the Red Carpet Catwalk. At 6.45pm the ‘Pre-Show’ Awards will be presented before the main meal is served at 7pm. Enjoy the delicious food whilst our Musical montage features on the large media screen. The official Award Ceremony will begin at 8.15pm and the delectable final dessert course will be served to you at 9.15pm before the show interval. The Ceremony will conclude at 11.00pm when we will hand over the microphones to our very own ‘Soul Band’. We encourage you to ‘put on your dancing shoes’ and enjoy the live after-show entertainment until late.
