The Open Contemporary Young Artist Award is an opportunity for artists 35 years old or younger working in the UK to submit work to be included in an exhibition at The Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle, with a grand prize of £1000 for the winner.
The Biscuit Factory is the UK's largest art, craft & design gallery, set in the heart of Newcastle's Cultural Quarter. House in a former Victorian warehouse, our beautiful gallery spaces, set over two floors, display a range of exciting contemporary fine art, sculpture, original prints, and jewellery.
The Biscuit Factory Foundation is a charity that aims to nurture and develop the practice and appreciation of the visual arts in the North East of England through an engaging and varied programme of creative opportunities.
Open to established and emerging artists that are 35 years old or younger, The Open Contemporary Young Artist Award will profile the successful entrants and raise awareness of mixed contemporary art practices. The Biscuit Factory welcomes submissions including fine art, photography, original handmade prints, sculpture, glass, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.
Launching on Friday 17 May 2019, the exhibition of shortlisted artists will run until Sunday 25 August 2019. All work included in the exhibition will be for sale, with 10% of sales going back to The Biscuit Factory Foundation to facilitate future opportunities for artists.
Judging for the award will take place during the exhibition, featuring a panel of experts.
PRIZES: The winner will receive £1,000 and the opportunity for a solo show of work at The Biscuit Factory, along with a comprehensive press package. There will also be a People’s Choice winner, as voted for by the public, who will receive a £250 prize.
