Stanley Mills Prizes go to eight students 

Magnifying glass

The winners of the Stanley Mills Prize for 2007-08 represent a range of undergraduate students’ artistic practice as recognized by professionals in their respective fields.

Seven $500 prizes were awarded, based on an evaluation of their creative and academic potential.

Two of the prizes went to theatre students. Stephanie Lambert received the Design in Theatre prize, and Rio Mitchell was given the award for Theatre in Development.

Most of the applicants were from Studio Arts. Jasmine Bakalarz, whose Beauty Pageant Series was exhibited at the VAV Gallery Pom Pom show and during Art Matters, earned one of the awards for a triptych in the series. Hanna Kang received a prize for Self Portrait (My Laurie) — the image on the right is the second part of that diptych. Her sister, Laura, is currently featured in the undergraduate student show at the FOFA gallery. Erin Muskett got the third prize for his painting Untitled No. 21.

The cinema awards were given to one filmmaking and one animation project. Marie-Eve Tremblay’s Aqui comienzan los estados undios wowed the selection committee. David Hoang and Karen Baker shared the animation prize for their collaboration on Clockworks.

The Prize was inaugurated in 1994. G.H. Stanley Mills was a professor in Canadian history at Sir George Williams University, later Concordia.
