  • quality of past works of the applicant as shown in the presentation of work; and
  • work exhibited in the finalist exhibition.

The winner will be announced at the opening of the FLMATS Finalist Exhibition. If the winner is unable to attend the opening, they will be notified by telephone or email in the following 24 hours.
