THE LYSICRATES PRIZE 2016 AWARD CEREMONY
Sydney writer Mary Rachel Brown has won the second annual Lysicrates Prize for new Australian playwriting with Approximate Balance, her as-yet unfinished story of a family struggling to overcome the emotional hardship caused by addiction.
Sponsored by philanthropists John and Patricia Azaria, the prize, a $12,500 commission from Griffin Theatre Company to complete the play, was decided by audience vote after the first acts from the three plays selected for the competition were presented to an audience of around 550 people in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music's Verbrugghen Hall on Friday evening.

RANAMOK GLASS PRIZE
The Ranamok Glass Prize is an annual acquisitive award for glass artists who are resident in Australia and New Zealand. The Prize was founded in 1994 by Andy Plummer and Maureen Cahill as a way to promote glass as an art form to the public.
The work presented for consideration for the Ranamok Glass Prize is expected to be a major effort in the artist's personal body of work. This work should be innovative, displaying excellence and imagination in quality of idea and execution in contemporary practice.
