About the prize

The Klytie Pate Award for Ceramics is a National prize, open to all ceramicists in Australia and New Zealand who are experienced in the craft, and carries an annual prize of $3000.

First held in 2017, the award is also being offered in 2018.

Entries for the 2018 competition were submitted by artists and designers across Australia.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for ceramicists and designers to compete for significant prizes and awards and sell their work, and to exhibit contemporary ceramic works showing design innovation and technical excellence.

Arts Mansfield believes the Klytie Pate Award and others like it enrich our cultural life and bring artists, collectors, curators and art appreciators to Mansfield.

The award is designed to encourage artists to continue their careers as ceramic artists. To be considered, artists  must be able to demonstrate that they are committed to a career as a ceramic artist, commercially viable and with a small body of work with artistic merit ready to show.
