Opportunity: Paid Commission for Sustainable Award Piece

5th June 2017

We are seeking an artist to create the award piece for the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award ceremony 2017!

**The deadline has now passed for this opportunity**

Could you be the maker of the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award?

We’re looking for a Scottish-based artist or maker to experiment with the environmental, social and economic aspects of their work whilst crafting the final piece for a prestigious international award at the world’s largest arts festival.

The award piece can be any shape, form or material. However, it should be a medium or small size and it should reflect the objectives and inspirations of the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award – an initiative that celebrates creative cultural responses to sustainability in production design or content.

Furthermore the award piece should content the following information (as engravings or equivalent):

  • Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award title and logo.
  • The name of the award winner(s) with the title of their production, and the producer and location of the production (if required).
  • A small range of partner logos.

The selected maker will receive:

  • a fee of £250 to include any material used for the creation of the piece
  • an invitation to participate in the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award ceremony in August
  • a feature on the Creative Carbon Scotland website (see 2015 and 2016 makers for examples), and promotion through social media channels of the maker, process and physical award piece.

The winner of the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award will be decided on Monday 21st August 2017, and the successful artist or maker must be able to complete the award piece (with the winner’s details) in time for the ceremony on Friday 25th August 2017.

The deadline for award piece proposals was midnight on 14th July 2017. We are no longer accepting applications for this commission.
