Applause: Latest funding and awards announced

Sculpture by the Sea artists tie for People's Choice Award, shortlist announced for $40,000 Douglas Stewart Prize, shortlist announced for NSW Premier's Literary Award, and more.

ARTISTS TIE FOR SCULPTURE BY THE SEA AWARD

In a dramatic end to Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2020, three artists – Mikaela Castledine and Ayad Alqaragholli from Perth and Marcus Tatton from Tasmania – will share the EY People’s Choice Prize of $5,000.

With only one vote between the three works, organisers decided to share the prize given voting had been cut short due to the early closure of the exhibition on Thursday 19 March, following news that community transmission of COVID-19 had begun in Perth.
