The award provides material support (€4,290.00) to the successful applicant in the form of a monthly stipend, and artist fees, an additional budget (up to €1,000) towards their exhibition costs, as well as in kind support such as mentoring, technical support and access to facilities.

The closing date for applications is Monday 1st March at 5pm.
