Awards & Scholarships

ATASDA has developed a range of awards and scholarships as part of our objective to foster textile and fibre arts.


Call for Nominations

The Award will be presented to a textile student who is finishing high school in 2018 and is going on to further studies, or is a continuing tertiary student. The Award will recognise the student's achievements in textile arts and surface design. It will provide the student with all the benefits of ATASDA membership and complement their further studies in the field.

Students must be nominated by a financial member of ATASDA, but do not need to be a current member themselves.

ATASDA - Outstanding Student Award Application


red-dressATASDA is delighted to announce that Jordan Fardell, from Dubbo, NSW is the winner of the Outstanding Student Award for 2009.

Jordan's enthusiasm for textiles was evident in her application to ATASDA, which presented details of her skill and creativity in textile design.

Jordan completed her HSC studies at St Johns College, Dubbo in 2009 and has plans to broaden her education in textiles in costume design for the dramatic arts.

A full artist's profile appeared in fiberline March 2010 issue for ATASDA members, and Jordan's Gallery, with her profile can be viewed here.

The selection process was not an easy one as a result of the high standard of entries, and ATASDA would like to congratulate the three other worthy finalists considered for the award (in alphabetical order):

  • Danielle Ames, Menangle, NSW

  • Laura Sinclair, Emu Plains, NSW

Details of these finalists' work also featured in fiberline March 2010 issue for ATASDA members.

ATASDA would like to thank all those students and nominating ATASDA members who entered this year. The selection committee thoroughly enjoyed reading all the applications and appreciated the time and care obviously taken in their preparation.
