Artists may apply for the cost of purchase of materials, texts, course or study fees or other expenses deemed appropriate by the assessment panel.

2016 applications open Monday 11 July and close Monday 19 September. The applications will be judged by an independent assessment panel and the winners will be announced in October. The Major Award will be $2,000 with a Minor Award of $500.
