The Vicki Torr Prize for Emerging Artists is awarded by Ausglass for excellence in glass. The judging is based on photographic submissions.
The actual process of selection and judging was somewhat contentious at the time. Emerging artists are defined as ‘having 5 years or less of professonal experience’. The winners of the 2009 Vicki Torr prize were Lee Mathers and Ruth Oliphant (as co-recipients) – both worthy winners. Su was later advised that her work was runner-up to the winning pieces.
