Vicki Torr Emerging Artist Prize
The Vicki Torr Memorial Fund - which underwrites the Emerging Artist Prize - was established in 1993 as a memorial to Australian glass artist Vicki Torr (1949-1992). Its purpose is to reflect Vicki’s life and work by encouraging excellence in Australian studio glass. The Emerging Artist Prize is a cash prize of $1,500.
The Prize demonstrates the creativity, competence and artistry that we have in our early-career artists within Australia.
This prize is open to emerging** artists who are current members of Ausglass and who reside in Australia. The competition represents a fantastic opportunity for early career artists to participate in a national exhibition.
The Prize is peer-selected, voted by current Ausglass members. The Prize is awarded on the basis of the highest number of votes cast by Ausglass members.
**For the purposes of this competition emerging artists are those with professional experience up to 5 years, including students.
