In 2022 not only will the Kudos Emerging awards be returning online, they will also be returning in person to showcase the next generation of emerging artists and designers, curators and writers!

The Kudos Emerging Awards seek to recognise and support innovation and talent
across all disciplines at UNSW AD in three categories: Emerging Artist and
Designer, Emerging Curator and Emerging Writer.

The annual Kudos Awards has always featured the most noteworthy local upcoming
arts practitioners, and is often the first big step in propelling emerging
artists careers to the next level. For audiences, the Kudos Awards has always
been the way to see and support the most exciting, upcoming, emerging talents
in town!

Finalists will present their artworks alongside artwork descriptions and artist
bios, not solely displaying an individual artwork in a gallery with no
description. We wanted to see how artworks fit in relation to an artists' body
of work and artistic practice that they're on the path to building!

The Kudos Award is open to all UNSW Arts, Design, &
Architecture students across any stage or kind of degree. All applications
have been assessed by the 2022 Kudos Committee, and our final online exhibition
will be judged by external industry guest judges who will award the major
