Congratulations to the 46 finalists in the 2015 Deakin University Contemporary Small Sculpture Award. This year we received 353 entries the highest number since the award began in 2009, and 73 more than last year.

The standard of entries was very high and judging was extremely difficult.

  • Professor David Cross, Professor of Visual Arts at Deakin University.
  • Ken Scarlett OAM, writer and curator on Australian sculpture.
