INGRID WINTERBACH AWARDED (article first published : 2004-06-7)

The NSA Gallery’s newsletter reports that Ingrid Winterbach, writer and visual artist, has been awarded the Hertzog Prize for prose for her most recent novel, Niggie. This prize is the most prestigious literary award for Afrikaans literature and is awarded every third year for prose. (The prize is awarded consecutively for poetry, drama and prose.) The other contenders included André Brink, John Miles and the much acclaimed novel Eilande by Dan Sleigh (translated as Islands).

Ingrid Winterbach, who lives in Durban, has written seven novels in Afrikaans and published shorter prose texts in various European and American literary magazines. She has won numerous awards and honours for her novels including the MNET Book Prize in 1994 and the Old Mutual Literary Award in 1997.

Trained as a visual artist, she has taught at the Department of Creative Arts at the University of Stellenbosh. A full-time writer and artist, she has participated in a number of group shows in Durban and has had two solo exhibitions at the NSA Gallery, the last being entitled Remember me/Is all I ask.
