Vicki Torr Online Prize

Each year the members of Ausglass award an emerging glass artist the Vicki Torr Online Gallery Prize. The annual prize is valued at $2,000 and is awarded to an emerging contemporary glass artist whose artwork images have been included in the Ausglass Member Gallery.

The purpose for the prize is to encourage emerging artists who display oustanding achievement in their art practise and to facilite an increase in their public profile by placing photographic examples of their work alongside their CV and biography in the Ausglass Member Gallery to maintain their online profiles by taking full advantage of the Ausglass Gallery.

The Vicki Torr Online Gallery Prize is now CLOSED.

Entry to the prize 2017 opened on 1 November 2016

Entry submissions closed on 1 December 2016.
