Artist and Queen's alumna Kara Chin's work is certainly getting her noticed. She won the hugely prestigious Woon Foundation Art and Sculpture Prize and receives a £20,000 fellowship including a year's studio space, mentoring and a final exhibition with catalogue.

The Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Prize offers an exceptional opportunity for students currently in the final year of their undergraduate study within the United Kingdom. The Woon Gallery of Asian Art contains rare oriental and contemporary art from The Woon Foundation Collection, including contemporary pieces from Picasso, Hirst and Warhol.

This is the second prestigious prize that has been won by Kara. In 2013 she was the recipient of the Piran Strange Award for Young Artists at the National Open Art Exhibition.
