It was announced at the Brett Whiteley Studio in Sydney's Surry Hills, that Karlee Rawkins, from Corndale near Lismore in northern New South Wales, is the winner of the fifth Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship.

Commenting on the award, Karlee said, The experience of leaving the small and relatively remote village of Corndale for the opportunities that Paris will provide is very exciting. It will give me the opportunity to put lots of effort into my work, and will be truly rewarding.

172 entries were received from around Australia, of which 39 have been shortlisted for exhibition at the Brett Whiteley Studio where they will be on display until 30 November. Entry for the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship is open to Australian artists aged between 20 and 30. The Scholarship comprises an amount of $25,000 and a 3-month residency at Citi Internationale des Arts in Paris, which is administered by the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
