The Scott Creative Arts Foundation holds an annual award for Emerging Artists based in Yorkshire.

There will be 10 awards overall with the winning artist receiving £1250, 2nd £500, 3rd £250 and 7 further awards of £100 each to the remaining shortlisted artists.
SCAF will hold an exhibition and award ceremony for the 10 finalists; in addition finalists will have a permanent artist page on our website and will have other benefits including use of SCAF facilities.
The award is open to up-and-coming artists in the Yorkshire Region who are not represented by an agent and are not yet recognised by art critics or the general public. For further information and to see the past winners and finalists please see:- www.scafemergingartist.co.uk
We are an arts charity based in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, founded in 2016 - charity number 1168545.
The theme for the SCAF Emerging Artist Award 2023 is LIGHT. As we emerge from the Covid pandemic, surrounded by the rhetoric of threatened climate crisis, food shortages, rising prices and ever-increasing social pressures, it is hard to feel lightness of spirit or connect with joy and creativity in our lives.
Exploring the theme of light and finding your own way of interpreting and expressing 'light' will offer a healthy counterbalance to the heaviness and darkness often experienced in these times. The visual arts have a long history of using light both as a subject and a tool to create emotion and drama, or simply to lead the eye to a specific aspect of composition. You may choose to represent light within your work, or play with light illuminating your piece or even work with light itself, the choice is yours.
There are three stages :-
1. Draw up a proposal - using words and images to best describe the piece you would like to submit as the finished piece
(If you are successful in this stage you will receive an invite as a finalist)
2. Create the artwork you have proposed in stage one.
(We will ask you to deliver the artwork to Thirsk)
3. Judging of the final 10 pieces and the winner announced at the SCAF EAA 2023 Exhibition on Saturday 1st July
Among the SCAF EAA 2023 Judges are:-
SCAF Artistic Director Dr Sue Armstrong, SCAF Curator Jane Young, SCAF EAA 2022 winning Artist Jane Claire Wilson, Mixed Media Artist Jill Tatersall, and Cynthia Corbett Founder/Director of The Cynthia Corbett Gallery and The Young Masters Art Prize.
