The Ian Potter Cultural Trust and ACMI will support three Ian Potter Moving Image Commission 2022 runner-up artists with $60,000 in the form of a six-month Creative Development and Mentorship Program.

The IPMIC 2022 judging panel was so impressed with the new moving image works of these three Australian artists, that the Cultural Trust and ACMI created this initiative.

The grants have been awarded to Pilar Mata Dupont for her proposed work La Piedra, Roberta Joy Rich for her proposed work traced. and Nicholas Mangan for his proposed work Core Coralations. Each artist will receive $20,000 while ACMI staff will provide their expertise and support to help with the development of their proposed artworks.

“ACMI is proud be partnering with The Ian Potter Cultural Trust to deliver $60,000 in artist development grants during this vital time in the recovery of the arts sector,” said ACMI Director & CEO Katrina Sedgwick OAM.
