Ningaloo Turtle the people's choice

News Update 17 October 2023

Salter Point local Amber Bennison has taken out the SOCO Realty People's Choice Award at this year's Emerging Artist Award.

'Ningaloo Turtle' is a mixed media collage and the beautiful detail makes it easy to see why it was the most popular work for visitors.

This winning work will be pasted up large-scale in the undercroft carpark at Angelo Street Coles in the coming weeks.

The Emerging Artist Award is an annual program providing a unique opportunity for young (from secondary school age up until 25 years) and older emerging (at the beginning of their professional creative careers) artists to exhibit their work in a public exhibition and to compete with peers for prizes.

The Emerging Artist Award is a selected exhibition – a panel of independent arts industry professionals select artists to be invited by the City to exhibit their artwork and compete for several awards.
