Overview

In 2008 the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship was significantly strengthened. Valued at $60,000, the scholarship provides assistance to enable an artist at the outset of his or her career to study art overseas for one to two years at a recognised art institution or to undertake a study program of workshops and study with an artist.

 

The format of the 2008 exhibition was re-shaped to allow for greater professional development opportunities for the final selected artists. Importantly, the increase in value to the scholarship has made it one of the richest prizes for emerging contemporary visual artists in Australia.
