Edinburgh Visual Artists and Craft Makers Awards & Emerging Artists Bursaries

City of Edinburgh Council, in partnership with Creative Scotland, is now offering awards for visual artists and craft makers to develop new work, and for emerging artists to progress their practice.

The Visual Artists Award and Craft Makers Award schemes award grants to individual artists/makers living or based in Edinburgh towards costs in developing new work. Awards of between £500 and £1500 are available.

The bursary programme will support two successful emerging applicants to develop and progress their creative practice over 12 months. Successful applicants will be awarded £1,500 as a bursary. It is open to both Visual Artists and Craft Makers.

The deadlines for application submissions for the Awards and Bursaries are:

  • Friday 9 October 2015
  • Friday 22 January 2016

Application packs will be available to download from the City of Edinburgh Council website from June 2015.
