Third year student Emma Stothard has received the prestigious Margaret Senior Award for 2013.
The Award recognises the talented students in the University’s Bachelor of Natural History Illustration program.
Margaret Senior was one of Australia’s most prominent and respected wildlife illustrators who died in 1995 leaving a bequest to the University to encourage the continuing study of natural history.
It was Emma’s excellence across all ten components of judging that made her stand out as this year’s winner said Program Convenor, Dr Trevor Weekes.
“I wasn’t on the judging panel as I was their supervisor, but I can say the decision was a hard one and very close. Emma had a strong body of work and a consistently high standard in all the work,” he said.
The award was presented to Emma by Simon Stroud, Manager of Visitor Experience and Education, Department of Climate Change and Water NSW.
All student entries will be on display in the Design Building foyer at our Callaghan campus until Friday 6 December, as well as work from Honours students in room D238. See campus map for directions.
