Winner's Announcement Night : 4 September 2018, 5-8 PM

The Kudos Award is an annual award that seeks to recognise, nurture and support innovation and excellence across all disciplines at UNSW Art & Design. This year the award was judged by Shireen Taweel, Adam Porter and Josh Harle. During the judging process, all three judges found that they kept returning to this work and found it to be an incredibly well realised work that shows an artist working hard to evolve the use of process and techniques in their practice.

Kudos Gallery is proud to announce Eva Nolan as the Major Prize winner of the Kudos Emerging Artist + Designer Award for their work The Pinned Moth Cannot Fly, 2018.

The 17th annual Kudos Award also marks the fifth consecutive year the Girl Genius Award has been awarded, with this year's guest judge Liz Ann Macgregor Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, selected Naomi Segal's No word for loneliness, 2018.
