Northlands Creative Artist Prize

Awards & Competitions 02-Jul-2019 - 12-Jul-2019

Located in the wild and dramatic landscape of Caithness on the North East Coast of Scotland, North Lands Creative is one of the world’s most prestigious centres for the study and development of glass as an artform, providing excellent facilities, opportunities and inspiration to artists working with glass from all over the world.

From the beginning North Lands Creative has been a meeting place not only for glass artists but has also actively encouraged the participation of visual artists, architects and designers wishing to explore the technical and artistic potential of glass either on its own or in combination with other materials. International in outlook, its users, contributors and participants come from the local area and the rest of Scotland, the UK and beyond.

North Lands Creative is hosting an exhibition showcasing the developing talent of artists. Open to national and international artists whether you are self-taught, a student or have graduated, as long as you are within 10 years of starting your practice with glass.

The Developing Artist Prize exhibition will be held during their esteemed Glass Nexus Forum 10-11 August 2019.

A jury will decide on the most innovative and well-executed work with the prize of a 2 week residency at North Lands Creative including accommodation (excluding travel) to the successful artist being announced on the afternoon of Sunday 11th August.
