See The Kimberley in a Single Location

Published on Wednesday, 22 May 2024 at 2:20:49 PM

When escaping to the Kimberley, travellers are often seeking thrilling experiences, immersive cultural experiences, and expansive landscapes.


They’re found within the towns, like Sculptures on the Marsh in Derby, or on the iconic red dirt roads, like Adcock Gorge on the Gibb River Road. The landscapes, splashing water, rugged terrain and wild animals blend to create such a unique experience.


That’s why the Kimberley Art and Photographic Prize is an incredible one stop shop for the Kimberley. View local artists hard work as their careers emerge, often reflecting the unique landscapes, traditions and stories of the region. Local art serves as a powerful vehicle for cultural expression and connection to place.


Art plays a vital role in preserving cultural heritage, community identity and stimulating economic growth. Experiencing the local art allows visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the community, and allow them to support local artists, to help them continue to tell the story of the Kimberley.


“There are so many beautiful and authentic entries to the KAPP each year. You can see the vision and self-expression in every corner. The submissions are incredible at capturing the remote Kimberley region and the local experience.”

Travis Hayto, Professional Photographer, Owner of SoCo Studios, and former Kimberley Art and Photographic Prize Judge.


View the captures of photographers who create the perfect memory of your travels, experiences, and the people you met along the way.


The KAPP is an acquisitive art prize supported by the Shire of Derby / West Kimberley, which acquires the overall winner each year.


In exhibition at the Derby airport for two weeks from the 29th of June, this is a must-see exhibition and immersive experience into culture and the Kimberley.
