The presentation will be preceded by a discussion of the prize-winning work with John Casken in conversation with Camden Reeves.

The jury stated:

The winning piece exhibited a level of creative excellence which was impossible to ignore. Imaginatively presented and ideally matching the quality of the composition, a piece which demands a rich future life.
