The Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award was developed by Manningham Council in 2009 to support Victorian studio ceramics and acknowledge the special place that ceramics has in the Manningham region.
The biennial award surveys current Victorian ceramic art practice and showcases ceramic artists from Manningham and its Valley of the Arts partners Maroondah, Nillumbik, and Banyule.
This acquisitive award helps develop Manningham Council’s contemporary Victorian ceramic art collection.
