The Cordis Prize for Tapestry

An £8000 international prize and exhibition promoting ambition and skill in tapestry weaving.

Closing date: 10 Jan 2019

The Cordis Trust is delighted to invite submissions for the fourth Cordis Prize for Tapestry. The aim of the prize is to reward ambitious and skilled use of tapestry weaving techniques. We hope that the prize will attract international entries from established artists working in the field of contemporary tapestry. We are looking for works that are essentially woven - they should reference traditional Gobelin techniques, but need not be wholly constructed using this method. Works need not necessarily be two dimensional or wall hung, we hope to encourage ambitious and non-conventional applications of tapestry weaving.

Shortlisted entries will be exhibited in the stunning setting of Inverleith House, located at the heart of Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens, and the winning entry will be selected from the shortlisted exhibits. The prize amount is £8000.
