It has been a long held philosophy of Federal Group that in order to have sustainable businesses you must be an active contributor to the communities in which you live and work.
Federal Group is a major supporter of sport, the arts and the local community sectors in the areas in which it operates. This support ranges from major investments through to smaller and more localised assistance. Support is provided through direct funding, sponsorships and in-kind support.

The Glover Art Prize
The Glover Prize is the richest annual prize for landscape painting in Australia. It is awarded for the work judged the best contemporary landscape painting of Tasmania. The winner receives $40,000 and a bronze maquette of colonial artist John Glover, whose legacy is celebrated though the Prize.
Landscape painting is defined in its broadest sense. The aim is to stimulate conversations about the meaning and possibilities expressed in the words landscape, painting and Tasmania. The Glover is open to artists from anywhere in the world. The exhibition is held over the March long-weekend in the historic Falls Park pavilion in Evandale, a village on the beautiful northern plains of Tasmania.
The winner of the Glover is selected from around 40 works chosen by a panel of eminent judges.
Federal Group is proud to be the principal and naming rights sponsor of the Glover Art Prize.
Festival of Voices
The Festival of Voices is Australia’s premier festival celebration of the voice in its many forms.
Every year during winter this unique festival welcomes over a thousand choristers and vocalists to the historic waterfront precinct of Hobart and for ten wonderful days turns it into a ‘Singing City’. The Festival offers a world class program of concerts, workshops and events for people of all ages and abilities, presented by internationally renowned guest artists and vocal teachers.
