October 9, 2015 by Perthshire Creates

The J D Fergusson Arts Award Trust is currently inviting submissions from artists for its 2016 Travel Award. The value of the Award will be in the region of £3,000-£4,000.

The criteria to enter is simple; if you are an artist and have been born in Scotland or have spent more than half your life here and are not in full-time education, you can apply. The Trust considers artists of any age, working in any medium. They also take into consideration the level of recognition you have already received and the amount of commitment you have shown in your artistic career.

The destination or period of travel is unrestricted, as long as you can tell the Trust on your application how the Travel Award will help the development of your work. Previous winners’ destinations include Italy, Japan, America, India and Antarctica.

To apply you are required to complete an application form and send in between six and twelve images of your work, by the deadline of 31 October 2015.
