Open to established and emerging artists aged 35 years old or under, the Contemporary Young Artist Award will profile the successful entrants and raise awareness of mixed contemporary art practices. The Biscuit Factory welcomes submissions including paintings, photography, original handmade prints, sculpture, glass, ceramics, textiles.

The winner will receive £2,000 and the opportunity for a solo show of work, along with a comprehensive press package. There will also be a People’s Choice winner, as voted for by the public, who will receive a £500 prize.
