The Redlands Art Prize is unique and truly artist-led. Relationships between older and younger generations of visual artists are critical for developing these practices and the School is privileged to be in a position to foster such productive creative relationships. This significant assembly of talent of both established and emerging artists provides an opportunity to recognise, showcase, support, and reward creativity and excellence in contemporary visual art.
A respected artist and previous Redlands Award participant is invited to select twenty or so artist peers, also known and respected in their field, who in turn select an emerging – or lesser-known – artist to present. The mentoring element of this model sits very well with the National Art School’s remit of encouraging students and emerging artists in their capacity for meaningful practice.
The Emerging Artist Prize is valued at $10,000 and is sponsored by Glenburn Pastoral Company (Brett Whitford)
