Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery

August 12, 2014  to  September 13, 2014

We’re thrilled to announce the inaugural Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery. Mari was a unique and passionate advocate for contemporary jewellery in Australia, both through her own remarkable practice and her establishment and directorship of Gallery Funaki.

This Award aims to celebrate Mari’s legacy by rewarding the skills and vision of jewellers both here and overseas and by providing a platform for outstanding new work to be shown here in Australia. A panel of three judges (to be announced) will award prizes in both established and emerging categories, with total prize money valued at AUD$11,000.

For entry conditions and more information, please email Award Manager Chloë Powell at award@galleryfunaki.com.au or download the PDF below.

The Award is generously supported by Vivienne and Leo Donati, Johannes Hartfuss and Fabian Jungbeck.

Deadline June 18, 2014
