I’m so pleased to share with you the news from Gallery Funaki (though I’m sure most of you have already seen it!):
“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 email@example.com or download the PDF below [link here].
The Award is generously supported by Vivienne and Leo Donati, Johannes Hartfuss and Fabian Jungbeck.“
