2017 Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize competition
Open to all artists working in found materials
The prize was established in 1997 in honor of SCC founder Elizabeth Rockwell Raphael. The $5,000 cash award recognizes excellence in the field of contemporary craft, and is presented in conjunction with a juried exhibition, video, and catalogue. A national tour is planned. The Raphael Prize competition is open to all interested participants and we especially encourage emerging artists to apply.
The jurying process will take place in two sessions. There will be an online review of submissions and follow up discussion on Saturday, August 5, 2017 (tentative date), when we will identify finalists. These 25-30 finalists will be invited to create and submit a work for the final round of judging, which will take place on Saturday, July 21, 2018, (tentative date).
