He has been on several art consultation and advisory boards including as a member of the National Gallery of Australia council.
Another judge is Tracy Puklowski who is director of the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and City of Launceston council’s creative arts and cultural services.
She had a 25-year career in New Zealand’s cultural heritage sector with the National Museum Te Papa Tongarewa, National Library and the National Army Museum Te Mata Toa.
The final judge is Tasmanian Indigenous artist, writer and curator of Indigenous Cultures at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Dr Julie Gough.
