"Do not try to win Awards. Nearly everybody likes to win awards. Awards create glamour and glamour creates income. Awards are judged in committee by consensus of what is known. In other words, what is in fashion. But originality can’t be fashionable, because it hasn’t as yet had the approval of the committee. Do not try to follow fashion. Be true to your subject and you will be far more likely to create something that is timeless.
That’s where the true art lies."
