Prize Details and Judging Process
The Tom Malone Prize (TMP) is an acquisitive award, with the year’s winning work becoming part of the Art Gallery of Western Australia's (AGWA) Collection. The winning work will be chosen as the stand-out work of the year’s field, and, as such, be a significant addition to the glass and contemporary art collections at AGWA.
As this is a Contemporary Glass Art Prize the works submitted will reflect current or leading trends in the Glass Art Movement. Creative, conceptual and technical risk-taking, are encouraged, as much as the incremental shifts in established or traditional practices.
The judges encourage all levels of artists to apply, and strongly advise that no artist holds back.
From the entries, the Gallery will make a shortlist of ten or more works from supplied images. Shortlisted works will be freighted to AGWA for consideration by the judging panel.
Shortlisted applicants will be notified by Tuesday 22 February 2022. To assist AGWA’s Registration department with transport arrangements, your work will need to be packed and ready for collection by mid-March 2022. Judging will take place at the Gallery.
Applicants not shortlisted will be informed by email by 26 February 2022.
The final judging and announcement at AGWA will occur in May 2022; the date to be advised.
The Tom Malone Prize is presented thanks to the generosity of AGWA Foundation donor Sheryl Grimwood.
Australian glass artists are eligible to apply and works must be made in the 12 months leading up to the cut-off for submissions.
Works must include glass but can also include other materials.
The winning artist is willing for their work to enter the Art Gallery of Western Australia’s State Art Collection.
