Aberdeen Visual Artists Award Scheme

Support to artists of all ages, who are resident in Aberdeen City, to encourage innovative professional practice in contemporary visual arts.

Awards available from £500 up to maximum of £1,500.

Whilst applications can be for the full amount, the panel may offer an amount less than that requested, dependant on how well the application meets key criteria, value for money and in context of demand for funds from other applicants.

Selected artists will:

  • be profiled through the council’s culture promotions;
  • where appropriate be matched up with city centre cultural organisations for additional support and mentoring.
