EMMA SMITH SCHOLARSHIP WINNER (article first published : 2006-12-24)

The Durban University of Technology (DUT) is pleased to announce Lindsay Phillips, (Fine Art student) has been awarded the Emma Smith Art Scholarship. Nine candidates were nominated from fields as diverse as Fine Art, Fashion and Textile, Interior Design, Graphic Design and Jewellery Design.

Founded in 1920 by the Hon. C. G. Smith in honour of his mother, the scholarship aims to support emerging artists in furthering their artistic skills. The nominees are selected by their departments according to merit and candidates eligible to enter must be in their final year of study.

“We have an absolute wealth of talent at DUT. This award goes some way in recognizing the effort put in by the students from the Art Faculty. We are pleased that this scholarship serves as a patron to the arts, reinforcing the importance of the arts in a well-balanced society,” says Professor Bonganjalo Goba, Vice Chancellor at DUT.

A panel of judges comprising independent adjudicators recommended by the art and design departments had the unenviable task of deciding who from the plethora of talented students the award should go to.

A virtual exhibition, displaying work by each candidate was recently on show at the DUT Gallery. The exhibition encompassed displays of artworks, model of designs and portfolios by all the participating candidates.

For further information please contact the curator, Nontobeko at (031) 2042207 Or email nontobekon@dut.ac.za.
