The The Kudos Emerging Artist + Designer Award is an annual award by Arc @ UNSW Art & Design that seeks to recognise, nurture and support innovation and talent across all disciplines at our campus. Celebrating its 18th anniversary this year, the Kudos Award aims to promote excellence in visual art and design at UNSW A&D, to encourage experimentation and development of process, material and concept, and to display students' works to the broader community and to nurture critical and creative engagement and activity.
The major award is $1,500 funded by Arc @ UNSW Art & Design, followed by highly commended awards, involving a series of exciting prizes donated by arts organisations and local businesses. We will also be presenting Girl Genius Award which is an independent prize awarded by a prominent guest judge and as facilitated by Tess Allas and Miranda Samuels.
This will also be our second year in which we will be running a People's Choice Award which will allow everyone to have their say! Visitors are encouraged to visit the exhibition prior to the winners announcement in order to vote for their choice. (The People's Choice Award will retroactively exclude the Kudos Award main award recipient from being in the running for People's Choice)
