The 2017 Clarence Prize will be held from September 8 to October 8 in the Barn at Rosny Farm Arts Centre.

This biennial event has found its niche within Australia’s art community as a prize that celebrates accessible furniture art and is open to furniture designers operating within Australia. The Prize contributes to Tasmania’s reputation as a leading cultural hub, brimming with vibrant arts experiences. In 2017 one acquisitive prize of $20,000 will be awarded to the winner. The work will be acquired into the Clarence Collection. One non-acquisitive prize of $1,500 will be awarded for a work that is highly commended. One non-acquisitive encouragement award of $1,500 will be made to an emerging artist/designer.
