This scholarship was established to support a young achiever in visual arts (30 years or under) who is a student or recent graduate at a tertiary education institution in the Lower Hunter (including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens, Cessnock, Muswellbrook and Singleton) to undertake a program of professional development in an international context. In 2016 an additional runner-up prize of $3,000 was donated by Maitland Regional Art Gallery and Vicki and Bruce Woods, the founders and Principal Sponsors, increased their donation to $5,000 for the Major Award.
In 2018 there will be a Winner’s Scholarship of $5,000 and a Runner-up Scholarship of $3,000.
