Friday 17, APRIL 2020 (please note reschedule)

Winners announced Wednesday, June 3

Note from Convenor:
Through December and January we have received feedback from artists across Australia – many have been significantly challenged by the current environment and this has impacted their ability to meet the deadline for the Call for Entries for this year’s Klytie Pate Ceramics Award. To give these artists the opportunity to enter we have rescheduled the Award and Exhibition to take place, in Mansfield, from June 3 through to June 14 (over the long weekend). We sincerely hope this change helps our ceramic artist community – giving more time to plan, develop and make beautiful pieces and to enter this Award.

About the prize

The biennial Klytie Pate Award for Ceramics is a national prize open to all ceramicists in Australia and New Zealand who are experienced in the craft.

The $5000 prize pool is awarded to contemporary ceramic works showing design, innovation and technical excellence.

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.
