AWARD is the British Ceramics Biennial’s headline exhibition. It is a prestigious exhibition formed from an open submission that celebrates the vitality of contemporary ceramics practice in the UK.

AWARD seeks to celebrate the talent and achievements of artist who are advancing contemporary practice. To showcase the diversity, ambition and creative-risk taking within ceramics.

Eligibility: We invite applications from UK-based practitioners and collaborators who use clay as their primary creative material.
