Each year Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursaries are awarded to ten early career artists working in three dimensions, of any age and nationality, who have been judged to be of outstanding potential.
Open to sculptors of any age and nationality, with or without formal training and working in any style or media, the awards are designed to provide vital support during what for many is a difficult transition to successful professional practice. Integral to the Royal British Society of Sculptors’ aim to promote the diverse language of contemporary sculpture, this Bursary Award provides a platform to emerging sculptors to realise their full potential in the professional sphere.
RBS will showcase your talent through a launch event, two Sculpture Slam talks, a group exhibition, an award catalogue, and a dedicated Bursary Awards section on the RBS website. Bursary winners are also invited to take part in a peer to peer mentoring scheme and receive two years free membership to the Society. With membership comes access to a community of nearly 600 practising sculptors, the unique RBS Fellows mentoring scheme, and opportunities to apply for member-only residencies, awards, exhibitions, as well as to present talks.
The deadline for applications to the awards is 5pm on Monday 6 July 2015.
