Rainer Weston, a recent Photo Media graduate, won the Siddell Memorial Award at the 2016 Eden Arts Young Artists Awards. The Siddell Memorial Award was “launched in 2012 and honours the late Sir Peter and Lady Sylvia who were Mt Eden artists and loyal supporters of the Eden Arts Trust.” Their daughter Emily Siddell, a past Young Artists Awards winner, presented the award to Rainer at the awards event on 3 September.
This annual award is open to 16-25 year olds living or studying in the Eden Arts Trust’s designated Mt. Eden area. Other award recipients include artists Falefia Roache, Emily Brown, Hannah Pawley and Isla Thomson. The awards were judged this year by Evan Woodruffe.
Whitecliffe congratulates Rainer on his win and thanks the Eden Arts Trust for their ongoing support of the arts in Auckland.
