Independent Arts Foundation 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 will be offered biennially with the inaugural award offered for professional development activity taking place from 1 January - 31 December 2013 and is 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.
Applicants must be aged 26 or under at time of application.
Carclew Industry Development staff are available to provide information and support for those applying for the Independent Arts Foundation Franz Kempf Printmaker Award to further develop their practice.
The award is offered biennially. Applications for activity occurring in 2012 and 2013 are now closed.
The recipient of the 2013 Independent Arts Foundation Franz Kempf Printmaker Award will be announced at a ceremony at Carclew on Wednesday 24 October.
