26 February 2013 | Sydney based artist Louis Pratt has been awarded the inaugural Mount Buller Sculpture Award. Pratt receives a prize of $100,000 and his winning work Voyeur will be installed permanently on the mountain as the first piece in the Mt Buller Sculpture Park collection.

Pratt’s work was selected by award judge Doug Hall AM from 22 shortlisted entries. Hall was the Australian commissioner for the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011 and was director of QAGOMA from 1987 to 2007. He said that
Voyeur was subtle, elegant and innovative.

The biennial Mt Buller Sculpture award is open to both Australian and international artists. As an acquisitive prize it will create Australia’s first mountain-top sculpture park. The finalists will be on display until the end of April.
