TUNA PRIZE is an art award celebrating the well-performed graduating students of Academy of Visual Arts. It was set up in 2009 by the first year alumni, and it is judged by alumni from different year and awarded in the graduation show each year. The latest trend of local art can be seen through the young artists’ jury panel. Therefore, Tuna Prize is a special significant for every fresh graduate. We hope that it can keep going on by graduates of coming years and years.

The exhibition is composed of two parts. The first part reviews the development of Tuna Prize since its formation in 2009, including its background, award winning works, judging records, etc. Another part shows the recent works of the prizewinners after their graduation. By providing a platform for Tuna Prize Winners to show their art creation, we would like to prove Tuna Prize’s ambition in encouraging young artists to continue their art creation.


吞拿魚獎是一項由視覺藝術院舊生頒予應屆畢業生的獎項,由第一屆舊生發起並於2009年成立,每年評審的角色由歷屆舊生擔任,目的是開放評審制度的平台,透過年輕藝術家的評審眼光,前瞻本地藝術的最新趨向。因此,對於每屆新畢業生而言,吞拿魚獎乃一項別具特殊意義的奬項。奬項期望能由每年的新一屆畢業生延續下去。

是次展覽由兩部份組成:一部分回顧吞拿魚獎成立至今共三屆的發展歷程,包括成立背景,歷屆得獎作品,評審過程等;另一部份展出得奬者畢業後的創作成果。透過是次展覽,我們希望提供一個平台予吞拿魚獎得奬者展示其藝術創作,實踐吞拿魚獎推動年輕藝術家繼續創作的理念。
