The 2013 winners of The Trudie Alfred Bequest Ceramic Scholarships have been announced to great cheer.
Trudie Alfred (1922 – 2010) was a well-known Sydney potter and teacher with a great passion for ceramics. She struggled financially to sustain a ceramic practice in her early years as a potter and so, to assist others in a similar position, left a generous bequest to The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA).
TACA will award up to 5 scholarships per year (2012-2016), each valued at $4000 (ie. total $20,000 per year for 5 years).
Thank you to Judges of the 2nd round (2012/2013): Stephen Benwell (VIC), Ben Richardson (TAS), Patsy Hely (ACT) and Vicki Grima (NSW) for their deliberations and to all 34 applicants who made the judges’ job a hard one.
Applications for 2013/2014 will be announced in The Journal of Australian Ceramics, issue 52/1.
Deadline: mid September 2013.
