Emerging Tasmanian artists are invited to apply for the AUD $12,500 MONA Scholarship 2012.
The money granted by the Scholarship is to be used to buy art materials and equipment for an exhibition at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) 12 months after receiving it. The exhibition will be held at the Mona Library Gallery, and the museum will select one piece for its permanent collection. The remainder of the works can be sold to the public, with the artist keeping the profit.
The 2012 MONA Scholarship winner will be announced on June 28, 2012 at Mona Library Gallery during Alyssa Simone's opening exhibition. Alyssa is a multi-media artist from Bruny Island, Tasmania and was the 2011 winner. She will exhibit between 6pm and 8pm.
Applications must be posted or delivered by hand to MONA by 5pm Friday 1 June 2012.
The winner will be advised by email in due time.
Please read all the participating rules carefully before submiting your application. And if you are not selected, don't worry. There are other ways of getting there.
