Competitions and Surveys
Abel Tasman Art & Design Prize
The Abel Tasman Art & Design Prize is open to students in years 11 and 12 in schools and colleges in Tasmania. The prize celebrates the link between The Netherlands and Tasmania. Every second year, the winning Tasmanian student spends three weeks visiting the City of Grootegast, home of the Dutch Explorer Abel Tasman. On alternate years, the winning student from The Netherlands visits Tasmania. The Prize is run collaboratively by Kingborough Council, the Dutch Australian Society and the Pathways Project. Entries will be called again in 2014.
