Applications to reflect:

  • High quality
  • Ongoing commitment to developing a visual art or craft practice
  • Opportunity for development
  • How the funding will develop work or practice

£500 Awards for New Graduates/Emerging Artists, will be considered for artists and makers who have been practising for less than three years.
