The John Fries Award is an annual $10,000 art prize recognising the talents of early career visual artists.
Since its humble beginnings in 2010, the Award has established itself as a platform for some of the most engaging and experimental works from the next wave of contemporary artists from across Australia and New Zealand. The prize was established by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries, who made a remarkable contribution to the life and success of the organisation. All finalists works will feature in an exhibition from 11 August – 2 September at UNSW Galleries – the Award’s presenting partner for the fourth year running.
Call for Entries to the 2017 John Fries Award are now open until 27 February, 5pm.
