Our Judge

Steven Rosten
ACC, L.L.B(Hons) Melb, Dip. Arch (Lond)


Growing up and educated in South Africa and Australia, Steven is a man of eclectic interests and practices in the visual arts.  From his Fine Art studies at the Sorbonne in France and later, at RMIT, his interests and skills in photography and film resulted in producing five films during 1971 to 1975 and also working as a production assistant to Director, Paul Cox, in “The Sirens”.  Steven has had two solo photography exhibitions for the Aboriginal Scholarship Foundation as well as creating and commissioning tapestries in Swaziland which won the first prize in the Pan African Art and Handicrafts competition in Melbourne in 1983.  Steven has had a successful solo exhibition in gouache and ink exhibited in Perth for the America’s Cup Challenge and a solo exhibition of watercolours of Ligurian seascape in Alassio, Italy.

Steven was a consultant for the National Gallery of Victoria in the placement of works by Arthur Streeton in a major retrospective exhibition touring Australia (“Arthur Streeton 1867-1943, A New Travelling Exhibition”) from November 1995 to December 1996.

In 2022, Steven toured Europe extensively and judged competitions by Ukrainian artists.

Steven has been a regular visitor to South Gippsland and, in particular, the Tarra Valley, for almost thirty years and although he has dedicated his life work to his chosen profession in law, he is devoted to the arts which he feels are imbued in his soul.
