The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize competition was established in 2003, and since then only minor changes have been made to it. The art world has changed significantly over the last 12 years and the South Australian Museum has decided it’s time to revitalise the competition to ensure it remains contemporary, well respected and supportive of the arts, and achieves its purpose of connecting people to the natural world through art.
What will change?
In 2015 the Waterhouse competition will not be held. Instead the Museum will work with the arts community and the public to review the competition and ensure it supports artists and the arts in a contemporary and relevant manner that reflects the Museum’s mission.
Although there will be no prize in 2015, the Museum has made a firm commitment to offer it again in 2016.
The Museum expects that the nature of the prize for 2016, including categories and conditions, will change as a result of the review.
How can I have my say?
You can have your say about changes to the Waterhouse prize by taking part in an online survey, which will be uploaded to the Waterhouse website in March 2015.
The results of this survey, along with other consultation outcomes, will be used to inform the Museum as it reviews the prize and ensure it remains pertinent to the arts community.
How can I stay informed?
Information about any changes to the way the Waterhouse is run will be available in June 2015. The Museum will email the information to artists subscribed to the Waterhouse mailing list and post the information to this website.
