Last year the Artists’ Collecting Society launched the inaugural ACS Studio Prize, a £6,000 bursary to go towards an artist’s studio rent for a year. They are once again running the prize and this year our judges are Eileen Cooper RA and artist duo Rob & Nick.
The Studio Prize was established after a number of our members spoke of the economic challenges they faced when starting their artistic careers. ACS realises how difficult it is to focus on your art especially after leaving university. The ACS Studio Prize was founded to help.
If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate university student on an accredited Fine Art course who is about to graduate, or if you have graduated from a university accredited Fine Art course within the last four years, and you work in pictures, collage, painting, sculpture, tapestry, ceramics, glassware or photography, then you are eligible to apply for the prize.
