1. On 7 November 2013, we celebrated the announcement of the Platform Graduate Award winner with a discussion about the opportunities and challenges facing emerging artists.

    We asked -
    What are the challenges and opportunities artists face when embarking upon a career? What support can they expect from galleries, dealers and other artists?
    How do they make sure they keep up their momentum after graduation?

    The panel of experts were:

    Adam Chodzko, artist
    Jonathan Viner, Director, Jonathan Viner Gallery, London and Margate
    Matthew de Pulford, Limbo studios and project space, Margate
    Lauren Wright, Curator, Turner Contemporary
    Joella Wheatley, Platform Award winner 2012
