have recently launched the Decal Award, an
acquisitive award based on technical skill in both
drawing and manufacture of the ceramic form.
The acquisitive prize for the CV Inc. permanent
collection is a generous $2000. The award will
recognise the diversity and skill in the production
of original studio ceramic work along with
the challenge of marrying drawn designs with
ceramic forms. Other manufacturer's awards will
be given by Walker Ceramics, Clayworks and
Northcote Pottery, along with a Regional Award
from Potters Equipment. The exhibition will be
held in October 2012. Entries close 14 September
at 5pm. Entry forms and conditions of entry are
