THE Rotary Club of Philip Island and San Remo
is proud to announce the inaugural Phillip Island
and San Remo Rotary Youth Arts Award.
The award is a brand-new monetary scholarship
worth $6000 for one lucky young artist.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for young peo-
ple in our area to gain access to further education
in the Arts” said Miranda Sage, Chairman of the
Youth Award working group.
The outstanding applicant will receive $3000
per year for two years, to assist them with the
costs of undertaking tertiary education in a related
field of study.
Highly Commended applicants, along with the
award winner, will also have access to free master
classes and workshops with acclaimed artists to
further develop their skills.
Secretary of the San Remo Art and Photographic
Show, Kirsty Mawer, said the award is a wonderful
way to help support fledgling young artists in the
Bass Coast community.
“The Rotary Club do a lot of good work with
youth, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have
successful shows in the past and to put funds
aside from those shows for the benefit of youth
projects,” Kirsty said.
“San Remo would certainly benefit from an in-
creased focus in the arts. We’ve got the art show in
San Remo, and we felt it would be appropriate to
provide a youth section to the art show, and to also
contribute to the youth of the area.”
The scholarship is designed to support the re-
cipient as they go on to study the arts at university.
Kirsty said she hopes the scholarship the sup-
port and motivation they need to throw themselves
into a career in the arts.
“This should help give our youth an opportunity
to undertake formal study in arts,” Kirsty said.
“We want to support them, and to help out com-
munity art scene, because a healthy art scene is
generally a healthy community.”
The inaugural Youth Arts Award will be held in
conjunction with the 2017 San Remo Rotary Art
and Photographic Show.
The award will be presented to one successful
youth under the age of 18 in the field of 2D art.
The Judge for the Inaugural Award will be Philip
Faulks, who has been an exhibiting artist using
elements of drawing, painting, printmaking and
sculpture since 1981, with over 100 public exhibi-
tions both in Australia and internationally includ-
ing 14 solo exhibitions.
“We want parents and art teachers to put this
out there, and to encourage young people to enter,”
Entries for the youth award close at 5pm on Fri-
day, February 10.

der 12 free.
