The Vitrify Alcorso Ceramic Award is a $10,000 annual prize for ceramic art. Established in 2011, the award is open to artists nationally and is non-acquisitive.
Four artists are selected from the entries received to develop work for a group exhibition of ceramic art at a commercial gallery. From this exhibition, one artist is awarded the prize money. Selection of finalists and the judging of the award is made by a panel of expert judges.
Vitrify is presented by the Alcorso Foundation, a not-for profit cultural organisation with its home in Tasmania. For more information about the Foundation and its initiatives, please visit the website www.alcorso.org.au.
Vitrify 2013 opens at the Bett Gallery in Hobart on Wednesday 28 August and continues until September 11 2013.
The winner of the 2013 Award will be announced on Friday, August 30th at the Bett Gallery.
Judges for the 2013 Award are highly respected ceramcist Neville French; David Handley, founding director of Sculpture by the Sea; and Peter Timms, author, arts editor and curator.
