Open Call Alpine Fellowship

The Alpine Fellowship Visual Arts Prize 2021 is looking for applications with visual arts response to the theme of the Alpine Fellowship 2021 - Untamed: On Wilderness and Civilization. The topic of this year's Alpine Fellowship is "Untamed: On Wilderness and Civilization". The organisers are interested in examining the conceptions of wilderness and wildness, the ways in which we attempt to tame our world and ourselves, and the connection and spaces between ‘the wild’ and ‘the civilised’.

Artists of all nationalities and to any aged 18 and above are welcome to apply for the Alpine Fellowship Visual Arts Prize 2021. Submitted artworks must not have won an award before or been placed in another competition at any time (including the Alpine Fellowship Visual Arts Prize), all media permitted, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, video, and installation.

The winner will receive a £ 2,000 cash prize and a further £ 1,000 towards the artist’s travel, and the shipping and installation of their work at the symposium in Fjällnäs. Runners up will be invited to attend the Fjällnäs symposium to exhibit their work, all food and accommodation covered. Travel expenses will be reimbursed up to a total of £ 500.

The application phase ends on 1 April. More information can be found here.

The Alpine Fellowship is a charitable foundation that supports, commissions and showcases artists, writers, academics and playwrights at all stages of their careers.
