  To be held every three years, the Splash McClelland Contemporary Watercolour Award has been established to showcase contemporary Australian watercolour practice. It is an acquisitive award enabled by the Fornari Bequest, by the Will of the late Lena May Fornari, and is a legacy of her support of the arts in Victoria. Lena May was an ardent collector of watercolours and the first acquisitions through this Bequest were significant watercolour paintings. Continuing this tradition, Splash presents the work of contemporary Australian artists who use this medium in highly accomplished and innovative ways. The Award will be judged by Linda Michael, independent curator and editor, with one highly commended work judged by Samantha Comte, Curator, The Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne.
