This year marks the 43rd annual Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award supported by Little Creatures Brewing. The competition showcases prints and artists’ books from established, emerging and cross-disciplinary artists and designers.
Each year the award presents works that celebrate traditional printmaking whilst also looking to the future of the medium. This year, we received 270 entries, which were reviewed by a judging panel consisting of:
- Lisa Roet, Melbourne-based senior artist and practitioner;
- Ron Bradfield, Membership and Indigenous Development Manager with Artsource; and
- Annika Kristenson, the senior Curator at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne.
The next round of judging will see the judges reconvene to assess each work in-depth before choosing the winners.
The winner will take home $16,000 and their work will be acquired for the City of Fremantle Art Collection, WA’s largest municipal collection. There is also a $6,000 second prize. The winner will be announced at the opening of Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award on Thu 13 Sep.
