The annual Desart Photography Prize has been running since 2012. The prize celebrates the art of photography from artists and art workers in the Desart membership. The exhibition is shown in Alice Springs and opportunities for curatorial skills development for art workers are integrated into the prize.
Previous winners of the Desart Photography Prize include Rosearanna Larry (Ikuntji Artists), Rhonda Dick (Tjala Arts) and Robert Fielding (Mimili Maku Arts).
Desart Photography Prize shows have been exhibited at Alcaston Gallery in Melbourne, the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair, and in South Korea.
