The 2015 Annual Student Art Prize was curated by Eloise Genner and installed by Eloise, Penny Finnigan, Barbie Clifton, Nadia Aurisch and Kim Saberton.

The show was judged by Ross Woodrow and opened by DVC Andrew Parfitt.

A special thank you and shout out needs to go to the team from Student Central (Rohan and Hugh) who prepped the platters and helped out during the night, the 2015 student committee (Maddyson Hatton, Nadia Aurisch and Kim Saberton) who staffed the bar and helped out during the night. To Andrew Donaldson Architecture and Design, and Lee Bateman for leading the project and the construction team for working ridiculously hard to finish for our opening and dancing around us during install!

Most of all Thank You needs to go to Penny Finnigan who has done an amazing job navigating this year! Her dedication to the student body through upholding the importance of Watt Space as an educational and student directed art space has been truly phenomenal. We cannot thank her enough for her hard work behind the scenes through this time of transition, and look forward to seeing her share her experience with many more students to come.
