The Alcorso Foundation’s national ceramic award, Vitrify

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 these four artists, one is selected to receive 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.

Vitrify 2011 was hosted by the Colville Gallery, Salamanca Place, Hobart.

Judges for the 2011, Professor Noel Frankham, Head of the Hobart School of Art; Tetsuya Wakuda, celebrated Chef and art collector; and Les Blakebrough, esteemed ceramist selected this year’s four finalists Kim-Anh Nguyen, Ben Richardson, Prue Venables, and Belinda Winkler,
