The deadline for applications for the RBS Bursary Awards 2015 has been extended until Monday 13 July 2015 - a unique award designed to provide a pivotal platform for ten early career artists working in three dimensions, judged to be of outstanding talent and potential.
Integral to the society’s aim to promote the diverse language of contemporary sculpture, the Bursary Awards are open to Sculptors of any age and nationality, with or without formal training, working in any style or media the awards and are designed to provide vital support during what for many is a difficult transition to successful professional practice.
Over two years we showcase the winning artists talent through a launch event, two Sculpture Slam talks, a group exhibition, an award catalogue, and a dedicated Bursary Awards section on the RBS website. Bursary winners are also invited to take part in a peer to peer mentoring scheme and receive two free years of membership to the society. With membership comes access to a community of nearly 600 practising sculptors, the unique RBS fellows mentoring scheme, and opportunities to apply for residencies, awards, exhibitions, as well as to present talks.
We are also currently actively seeking support to develop the Bursary Awards and enable us to offer a more concrete series of opportunities and prizes to help the ten winners establish their careers.
Deadline for applications: 5pm Monday 13 July 2015
Application Fee: £20
