Intro
Austrian artist Benedikt Fischer is the winner of the 2018 Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery and German artist Samira Goetz is the winner of the Emerging Award.
Benedikt Fischer has been awarded an acquisitive prize of $8000, his work entering the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Victoria (subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees).

Samira Goetz has been awarded a cash prize of $2000.

In speaking about Benedikt’s winning Pearly Whites brooches, the judges noted:
What stands out in these pieces is the freshness and humour, as well as the incredible material resolution and skill. It’s difficult to work with shell and create something that isn’t a trope. On a number of levels Benedikt’s comes together incredibly well. They’re an instant classic.

On Samira Goetz’s DWELL neckpiece, the judges said:
It works so well and is extremely wearable despite the fact that it’s big. It’s bold and it’s well resolved.

This is the third iteration of this award and it’s been exciting watching it evolve over the years. The award is an exciting opportunity to look at of what’s happening in contemporary jewellery across emerging and established practice worldwide.
/ Katie Scott, Director of Gallery Funaki.
