Open Call | Golden Fleece Award 2019

Application deadline: Friday 23 November, 2pm.

The Trustees of the Golden Fleece Award are pleased to announce that entries are now open for the 2019 Award.

The Golden Fleece Award provides resources for practising contemporary visual artists and makers to innovate and develop their artistic vision. The award supports artists working in all forms of visual, craft and applied arts at critical junctures of their careers. Applicants should be Irish residents or from the island of Ireland.

The Golden Fleece Award is an independent artistic prize fund established as a charitable bequest by Helen Lillias Mitchell (1915-2000). There is an annual prize fund of ā‚¬20,000. It is usually possible to make a main award of between ā‚¬12,000 and ā‚¬15,000. How the rest of the fund is distributed varies from year to year at the Trusteesā€™ discretion.

All applications are assessed by a specialist artistic advisory panel and a shortlist recommended to Trustees.

There is no entry fee. Prizewinners will be announced in March 2019.
