The Robert Juniper Award for the Arts is administered by the Mundaring
Bicentennial Scholarship Trust which was established in 1988 to provide awards
for deserving young artists associated with the Shire, to enable them to pursue the improvement and development of their artistic
ability or talent. All forms of art are considered, including visual arts, craft, performing
arts, literature, film and music.
The Trust defines “deserving young artists” as
persons who, in the opinion of the Trustees, have displayed special ability,
talent or potential in any of the arts, and who are in need of financial
assistance to enable them to further that artistic ability, talent or
potential. The artist must be under the
age of 35 on 31 December in the year of application, and must be living,
studying or working in the Shire of Mundaring, or have done so for a
significant part of their life.
