IAF Franz Kempf Printmaker Award

The Independent Arts Foundation Franz Kempf Printmaker Award supports the professional development of a South Australian printmaker (aged 26 and under).

The award is offered biennially for professional development, with the next activity period taking place from 1 January - 31 December 2019, valued at $4,000.

The award has been made possible due to a generous gift made by long-time Independent Arts Foundation member and internationally recognised, Adelaide-based artist Franz Kempf AM.

With a celebrated career spanning over half a century, Franz realises the value of providing development opportunities for emerging printmakers. The biennial award of $4,000 is to pursue professional development opportunities in the artistic practice of printmaking.

Carclew's Funding Program Coordinator is available to provide information and support for those applying for the Independent Arts Foundation Franz Kempf Printmaker Award to further develop their practice.
