The Dewar Arts Awards

The Dewar Arts Awards fund exceptional young artists in any discipline who do not have the financial means to achieve their full potential.

To be considered for a Dewar Arts Award, an applicant must:

  • Be under the age of 30
  • Live or work in Scotland
  • Demonstrate outstanding talent in any artform
  • Be without the financial means to achieve their full potential

The Trustees look for candidates who have strong ambition and a real passion for their chosen artform.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate a clear view of their future development (or that of a particular project), and how receiving a Dewar Award would help them to achieve their goals.

Note: They do not fund CD production.

There are no application deadlines; they accept nominations for the awards all year round, in recognition of the fact that opportunities do not always fall neatly into the financial calendar.
