The prestigious John Stringer Prize – created in 2015 in honour of acclaimed curator, the late John Stringer (1945–2007) – commissions six contemporary WA artists to create new work from which a winning artist, selected by the Collectors Club will receive $12,500.
Entry to the John Stringer Prize is by invitation only and in 2020 finalists are:
- Eva Fernandez
- Fiona Gavino
- Peggy Madij Griffiths
- Susan Roux
- Curtis Taylor
- Mark Tweedie
Finalists have been selected by an independent panel of eminent figures in the industry comprising: Janis Nedela Curatorial Department, The Stokes Collection, Glenn Iseger-Pilkington, Lead Consultant, Gee Consultancy and Jane King, Manager, John Curtin Gallery.
The selection process involves each panel member devising a shortlist of eligible artists, with the panel then conferring to choose six artists whom they jointly agree have upheld rigorous practices worthy of the prize. In making a selection, panelists are expected to place emphasis on the need to encourage practitioners who, in their opinion, are deserving of greater recognition.
