The winner, Monique Jansen 'Folded Moire Drawing', pencil, paper was announced on opening night by judge Heather Galbraith and will receive the grand prize of $20,000.

Subjects range from traditional (and not so traditional) figure drawing to pure abstraction and beyond.  The inaugural award also revealed that drawing is much more than charcoal or pen and ink on paper with artists also submitting Neon lighting tubes, embroidery, felt pens, ceramics, latex, plaster, receipt tickets, wallpaper, biro, and recycled furniture.

The award exhibition encompasses large expansive works on paper in pen and ink, intimate collage and colour-field works, performance, traditional landscapes, maps, interactive works of art and graphic design.
