There won’t be a Zanesville Prize competition in 2016,
but it will be held again in 2017.
All Ohio Contemporary Ceramics Competition and Show
October 7-9, 2016
With major support from the Ohio Arts Council, Appalachian Hills of Ohio Territory (AHOOT) invites all Ohio ceramists (includes anyone who was born in, lived in, worked in, attended school in Ohio or is submitting an Ohio- themed work to this competition) to enter one piece only in a $5000 competition with a $2500 first prize, $1000 second prize, $500 third prize, two $250 honorable mention prizes and a $500 artists’ award selected by attending artists. This new biennial competition alternates with the prestigious Zanesville Prize for Contemporary Ceramics. The All Ohio Contemporary Ceramics Competition judge is Christine Golden of Flagstaff, Arizona, winner of the first Zanesville Prize ($20,000).
