TEMP 2018 - Friends of the University of Newcastle Acquisitive Student Art Prize

The Friends of the University of Newcastle play a vital role in the development and support of scholarships for the university and
fund raise for the university and its community. This year, the Friends of the University of Newcastle are again sponsoring the 2018 Student Art Prize. Entrants have been tasked to respond to the theme, ‘temp’, and its many connotations.

The Student Art Prize assists in the growth of the University’s art collection, ensuring that it remains relevant to our region with contemporary work for future generations to enjoy. Two winners will be awarded $1,000 each and their work acquired for the
University’s art collection.

The judges for the 2018 exhibition are independent writer and curator, Scott Millington and Courtney Novak, Program Coordinator of the Lock Up.

The Friends of the University of Newcastle also sponsor the annual Margaret Olley Postgraduate Scholarship, named in honour of distinguished Australian artist and philanthropist Margaret Olley.
