The 2014 John Fries Award is currently calling for entries. The entry criteria has been simplified this year, so if you consider yourself to be an emerging or early career artist then you're eligible to enter.
John Fries was my father. He worked pro-bono for some not for profit organisations, including Viscopy as treasurer and board director. The John Fries Award was initiated in 2009 by the Viscopy Board of Directors and my family. Viscopy/Copyright Agency runs the award and the 2014 Finalists Exhibition will be held at UNSW Galleries CoFA in August. I'm currently on the Viscopy Board, chair the John Fries Award committee and on the judging panel.
To enter and find out more go to www.viscopy.org.au/john-fries-award - entries close Monday 5 May 2014.
