Julia Ciccarone
Finalist in The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize

The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize™ is Australia's richest prize for natural history art, boasting a total prize pool of $114,500. Each year entries are invited in three categories: Paintings, Works on Paper and Sculpture & Objects.

Frederick Waterhouse was born 25 August 1815 near London. He worked at the British Museum as a zoologist and became the first curator of the emerging South Australian Museum, which opened in January 1862.

Waterhouse was an avid collector of Australia's fauna accompanying J. McD. Stuart across the Australian continent in 1861 to collect and document its fauna. He collected insects, reptiles, birds, mammals and plants. He discovered 40 new species of fish off the South Australian coastline.

The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize will be announced on 20 July at the 10th Anniversary Gala Launch at the South Australian Museum.

Good luck, Julia!
