Glenfiddich and OCAD University
Issue Call for Canadian Artists to Enter Competition for the Coveted
2013 Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize
Submissions: Open Now
Glenfiddich and OCAD University are issuing a "Call to Artists" currently living and creating art in Canada to enter the internationally renowned competition for the prestigious 2013 Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize.
The Canadian winner will be one of only eight artists worldwide to be awarded the art community's coveted prize to live and work at the Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. The three-month residency valued at $20,000 per artist represents the Glenfiddich commitment to the arts and the communities it serves.
Now in its 12th year, the Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize annually attracts over 100 submissions across the country from the visual arts. The prize covers the cost of travel, living expenses and materials throughout the residency. From the submissions, four jury members choose seven finalists and ultimately one winner.
While living in crofts (traditional small Scottish farm houses), artists are encouraged to find inspiration from the unique setting in the Scottish Highlands. The experience provides an opportunity unlike any other for artists to work in an international community, share in a dialogue with other artists and foster cross-disciplinary ideas.
The Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize has sponsored over 84 artists since its inception in 2002.
Submissions Deadline: Thursday, January 31, 2013
Applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org for terms of reference, program and selection criteria.
