Major Prize of $30,000

Winner:  Harrie Fasher, ‘Held’ (featured above)

…to imagine that you can reintroduce the horse into art, in a contemporary way, is very ambitious. The sculpture has a strong presence, depth, rawness, motion and grunt.

Highly Commended Prize  – $5,000

Winner: James Rogers, ‘Anatomy’

Rogers has created a lyrical sculpture which contains so much work yet still appears effortless. It feels like a drawing in space.

Emerging Artist Prize – $2,500

Winner: Willemina Villari, ‘A Bagful of Memories’

The use of minimal materials in such a figurative way creates a whimsical work which achieves so much with so little.
