In 2015, the Gold Coast Film Festival worked closely with SWELL Sculpture Festival to commission a local artist to design the new Chauvel Award.

The design represents how the Australian landscape and, in particular, the Gold Coast hinterland, can influence and reflect a creative journey.

Following a complex selection process, Gold Coast based artist LEISA RUSSELL was commissioned to create the new Award design.

The award this year will go to Claudia Karvan.

Congratulations to Leisa and Claudia.
