Hatched is also celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Dr Harold Schenberg Arts Awards. PICA say they are thrilled to have renewed their partnership with The University of Western Australia to present four Hatched artists with these awards, valued collectively at $50,000. 

This year, three $15,000 awards will be presented at PICA’s Hatched Opening Party. The final People’s Choice Award of $5,000 will be presented to one artist at the end of the exhibition.
