ICOM Australia Award for International Relations (IAAIR)

This award celebrates the exceptional work undertaken by individuals and Australian institutions to strengthen international ties and contribute to the cultural richness of our region.

ICOM Australia believes that cooperative projects are very important in strengthening museum relations internationally by promoting information sharing across borders and distributing unique resources worldwide.

The glass globe awards were commissioned by ICOM Australia from Sydney based master glassmaker Benjamin Edols, and were created at the Canberra Glassworks.

Two types of award are offered:

  • a discrete project or an ongoing initiative during the previous year that strengthens museum relations internationally, promotes information sharing across borders and distributes resources beyond Australia
  • an outstanding individual achievement, recognising sustained international work over a long period.
