Tammy Kingsley, an American, came to Alice Springs in 1979 and worked energetically for the Alice Springs Art Foundation, keenly promoting the Alice Prize.

In 1980 Tammy, her youngest son and his friend were killed in an horrific road accident.

In the year 2000, the Foundation received word of a very generous bequest from an American, George J Scott (Tammy’s father).

 

The Tammy Kingsley Award honours a woman who was inspirational in the long history of the Alice Prize and honours also our benefactor who has provided the means of reinvigorating the Prize itself.
