Following a successful first year, The France Brodeur Young Artists Award (FBYAA) is very happy to announce both its Awards Evening for 2016 and the opening of the 2017 call for applications.

At the Awards evening, the 2016 award winners – Molly Lemon and Pamela Schilderman – will be exhibiting their work and talking about how FBYAA has helped them.

The FBYAA offers financial support to a young artist(s), aged between 18 and 35 years old, in relation to their art and artistic career. Ideally, grants awarded will be towards costs involved in a proposed project, which should include developing new work.

Practitioners who can demonstrate a commitment to their work, technical rigour, and development within their practice, would be ideal candidates.

Awards of between £500 and £2,500 are available.

The FBYAA 2017 call for applications opens on Friday 3rd March 2017 and closes at 12 noon on Thursday 31st August 2017. It is intended that award(s) will be announced in October 2017.
