Vicki Torr Online Gallery 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 Online Gallery.
The purpose for the prize is to encourage emerging artists who display outstanding achievement in their art practise and to facilitate an increase in their public profile by placing photographic examples of their work alongside their CV and biography in the Ausglass Online Gallery.
Ausglass recognises the importance of maintaining a public profile through the online gallery. This database of images are a reference for galleries, collectors and other institutions who frequently use the Ausglass site to stay informed about the Australian contemporary studio glass movement. This award aims to encourage all our members to maintain their online profiles by taking full advantage of the Ausglass Online Gallery.
