Aberdeen Visual Artists & Craft Maker Awards 2013/14

November 4, 2013

Aberdeen City Council is committed to supporting the work of their resident artists and encouraging innovative professional practice in contemporary arts and crafts.

In a partnership with Creative Scotland, the Council has established two award schemes as a means of assisting individual artists and makers. Funds can help towards activities that are integral to the practitioner’s personal and professional development, such as the immediate costs of researching, creating and presenting new work or advancing skills, technical ability and ideas.

The Visual Artists Awards Scheme (Awards up to £1500) is aimed at practitioners in the fields of drawing, painting, sculpture, print making, photography, moving image and filmmaking.

The Craft Makers Scheme (Awards up to £1500) is principally concerned with contemporary creative work conceived, designed and made by individual practitioners in ceramics, furniture and wood, glass, jewellery, metalwork and textiles.

There are two rounds of deadlines, application submissions for both award schemes need to be received no later than:

First round – 12 midday, Sunday 15th December 2013
Second round – 12 midday, Sunday 2nd February 2014

Full information on the awards can be found at:
