Open Contemporary Young Artist Award
18th May - 20th August

Following the success of last year's Open Contemporary Portrait Award The Biscuit Factory is delighted to present a national open call exhibition for young artists working across various mediums.

 

The Open Contemporary Young Artist Award is an opportunity for artists 35 years old or younger working in the UK today to submit work to be included in an exhibition at The Biscuit Factory. Open to established and emerging artists the award and exhibition will profile the successful entrants and raise awareness of mixed contemporary art practices. The Biscuit Factory welcomes submissions including fine art, photography, original handmade prints, sculpture, glass, ceramics, textiles and jewellery. 

 

Launching on Thursday 18 May 2017, the exhibition will run until Sunday 20 August 2017. All work included in the exhibition will be for sale, with 10% of sales going back to The Biscuit Factory Foundation to facilitate future opportunities for artists. The Biscuit Factory Foundation is a charity that aims to nurture and develop the practice and appreciation of the visual arts in the North East of England through an engaging and varied programme of creative opportunities.

 

The winner of the Open Contemporary Young Artist Award will receive £1,000 and the opportunity for a solo show of work at The Biscuit Factory, along with a comprehensive press package. There will also be a People's Choice Winner, voted for by the public, who will receive a £250 prize. Judging will take place during the exhibition, featuring a panel of experts.
