Kudos Emerging Artist + Designer Award

Now in its 18th year, the Kudos Emerging Artist + Designer Award seeks to recognise, nurture and support innovation and excellence across all disciplines at UNSW Art & Design.

This award aims to promote excellence in visual art and design at UNSW, to encourage experimentation and development of process, material and concept, to display UNSW Art and Design to the broader community and to nurture creative activity and community within the Paddington campus of UNSW.

All UNSW Art & Design students working in any medium are eligible to enter. Entry is free for Arc members, and Arc membership is free!

In 2019, we are doing things a little differently and letting audiences see all the works before announcing any winners. And we want you to have your say by voting for the inaugural recipient of the People's Choice Award. Voting will take place on-site, so make sure you check out the show in the first two weeks!

2019 Kudos Emerging Artist + Designer Award:

Submissions will be opening at a later day in Trimester 2 for an exhibition in late August 2019.
