Scarlett Award Open for Submissions

Entries Invited 

 

The Scarlett Award is a nationwide competition for Australian professional and non-professional critics, artists and writers to help foster an appreciation of contemporary sculptural practice. The Award provides writers with an opportunity to have their work published on line, with the potential of further print media publication. Launched in 2014, the Scarlett Award is an important vehicle encouraging and nurturing critical visual arts writing about sculpture and public art.

Entrants are to submit an 800-word short essay on one of the following streams:

• A Lorne Sculpture Biennale sculptor(s) and their practice

• Lorne Sculpture Biennale and its theme of ‘Landfall’

• Public outdoor sculpture

Named in honour of Ken Scarlett OAM, an acknowledged expert curator and writer on Australian Sculpture and the author of a key text on the subject. Ken has provided remarkable support for over 40 years to generations of Australian sculptors through his writing and promotion of their work.

The Scarlett Award is generously sponsored by David and Margaret Harper
