THE SILK CUT AWARD FOR LINOCUT PRINTS

The Silk Cut Award was introduced in 1995 to encourage the making and appreciation of linocut prints. Sponsored by the Silk Cut Foundation Inc in conjunction with Duroloid and Dutch manufacturer Forbo, the award aims to provide creative opportunities for artists of all ages. A unique and vital part of the award is its special category for primary and secondary school students with winners being part of an ongoing gift to the National Gallery of Australia. International entries are welcome and encouraged.

The name Silk Cut reflects the versatile and effortless handling qualities of this natural linoleum product.

The 2010 Grand Prize in the Open section was awarded to artist Bridget Hillebrand for her work Seven-and-twenty lake. Her print will form part of the ongoing gift to the National Gallery of Australia.
