The National Art School is delighted to be working together with Redlands to present the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize (RKMAP).

It is not limited by media or subject matter. Each year a guest curator is appointed to curate the exhibition and select approximately 20 artists. In 2013 the guest curator will be the highly respected artist and educator Julie Rrap. In addition to this, each invited artist is asked to nominate an emerging artist to exhibit with them. A panel of judges consisting of up to two invited experts in the field, two representative from Redlands and the National Art School Curator will award the prize categories.

Julie Rrap will be the guest curator for 2013 and the Prize also welcomes new sponsors for each category, increasing the total prize pool to $36,000. Longstanding supporter Konica Minolta, previously sponsor of the emerging award, will sponsor the main artist award whilst increasing prize money to $25,000. Law firm Allens will sponsor the emerging artist prize, awarding $10,000 to the winning artist. There is an additional $1000 prize awarded to the artist selected as the Viewers’ Choice. The acquisitions form a substantial part of Redlands teaching collection.
