Aidan Threlfall Trust Award: Calling Emerging British Painters

Updated: 10 April 2024

The purpose of the Trust is to encourage promising young painters. This could be through the award of a travel scholarship to provide inspiration and motivation for an individual’s work, or in the form of a grant towards the fulfillment of a specific project which would further their art education or career. One award is made each year. We invite painters to send proposals for travel or another project that would enhance your career development as an artist.

Eligibility: Our award is offered to a graduate (within two years of graduation) or a student in their final year of BA or MA course. They must be of British nationality and have studied or are studying at an art college in the United Kingdom. The applicant must be under the age of 28.

What you get: The artist selected will receive a grant of up to £2000
