Judge’s statement regarding the winner
Paauwe, a former recipient of the Samstag scholarship, receives $15 000 in prize money plus a one month artist’s residency in Alice Springs. This prize provided a rare opportunity to encounter the beauty of the Central Australian landscape and people, and has the potential to make a significant impact on an artist’s future career.
