The Jenny Birt Award 2010 exhibition included paintings, drawings, installation and a video. Participating artists included a range of styles, the common denominator being their status as recent COFA courework painting students. It took place at COFAspace Gallery in April. There were 10 students shortlisted for the show. The show was a good selection of emerging talent. The recipient of the cash prize was Bernice Ong and the runner-up was Ben Norris.
