Composer and pianist Anthony Pateras has been awarded a $160,000 Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship among seven other Australian artists. The list of new mid-career Creative Fellows was made public in Melbourne yesterday. The grant of $160,000 is meant to provide income over a two-year period, allowing Fellows time to reflect and develop aspects of their creative practice without financial pressure.

The other seven 2014 Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships were awarded to Vernon Ah Kee (visual art), Clare Britton (performance). Amy Gebhardt (film), Anthony Hamilton (dance), Chloe Hooper (literature), Emily Sexton (festival direction) and Jeff Sparrow (literature).

Previous Sidney Myer Creative Fellows include violist, improviser and composer Erkki Veltheim (2013) and composer Paul Stanhope (2012).
