The award is £5000 for a maker, plus an additional £2000 for a mentor whose discipline and/or professional experience would add value to the winners practise. The purpose is to encourage and mentor makers to develop their practice to a higher level, consider innovation and introducing new materials or techniques to their existing practise.

Shortlisted artists will exhibit a work or a body of work in a dedicated section of Visual Arts Scotland’s next Annual Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy, 22 December 2019 to 30 January 2020. The winner will be announced during the exhibition and will be invited to develop a new body of work in conjunction with their mentor to be exhibited at the subsequent VAS annual exhibition.
