A panel of experts who are integral to the growth and innovation of contemporary ceramics practice select ten artists to exhibit in BCB 2025. Each selected artist will receive £1,000 towards the presentation of their work as a central component of the Biennial. From the selected artists, one winner is announced and awarded a £10,000 cash prize during the Biennial.

What are the ambitions of Award 2025?

  • To present ambition and creative risk-taking within contemporary ceramics
  • To celebrate the talent and achievements of artists
  • To give a platform to artists with a compelling idea or opinion they want to express
  • To be diverse and inclusive, reflecting the richness of ceramics practice

Who is Award for?

Award invites applications from UK-based individual practitioners, collaborators or collectives who use clay as their primary material. The Award exhibition seeks to have a positive impact on the practice of the exhibiting artists. We seek to support artists who want to make best use of the opportunity, who may wish to tread new ground, use the momentum of the exhibition to focus or make a step change in their practice or to present work in ways it hasn’t previously been experienced.
