Bakhap Award for Sculpture 2017–18

The Bakhap Award for Sculpture 2017–18 is a sculpture award run by the James Scott Decorative Arts Society (JSDAS) to recognise and encourage the development of the arts. The award is named after Thomas Bakhap, a man who had links with the Chinese community in the North East of Tasmania, and who went on to represent the region at the start of the 20th century as a popular politician at both the State and Federal levels.

JSDAS is pleased to announce that the Bakhap Award for Sculpture 2017–18 will again be sponsored by Bridestowe Lavender Estate.

The Bakhap Award will be launched on 22 November 2017. Entries will close on 1 March 2018 with the winner announced on 10 May 2018. An exhibition of the finalists work will be held at Bridestowe Lavender Estate from May until July 2018, with the winning sculpture installed on the estate by the end of August 2018.

The inaugural Bakhap Award was held in 2015-16 and was won by Tasmanian Frank Prins with his work  Bloom in Blue.
