Since 2016, The Craft Scotland Prize has been presented to one piece of outstanding craftsmanship and design from Visual Arts Scotland’s (VAS) annual open-submission exhibition. 

This year, Craft Scotland will make an award of £500 to one artist/maker working in wood who is exhibiting at VAS annual exhibition 2019, ALIGHT. 

Visual Arts Scotland's annual exhibition offers the opportunity for visitors to see the diversity of contemporary and applied art being created today. Artists, designers and makers working in all disciplines can test, showcase and engage with wider audiences at one of Scotland’s iconic exhibiting venues, The Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) on the Mound in Edinburgh.

The Craft Scotland Prize runs alongside Craft Scotland celebrates...wood, part of Craft Scotland and Visual Arts Scotland’s ongoing Craft Scotland Celebrates series. This media-specific series is dedicated to exploring contemporary material practices and the creative energy that makers bring to different mediums. 

In 2016, we awarded the first The Craft Scotland Prize to an exhibiting craft maker, Polly Collins for her piece 'Slow Dining'.  The Craft Scotland Prize 2017 was awarded to Andrea Walsh for her piece Contained Boxes. Previous Craft Scotland celebrates showcases included a focus on ceramics (2017) and glass (2018).
