KFA 2015 – submissions now open!

unnamed

The Kim Fielding Award is a brand new £5000 award for a creative individual or group. Applications are now open, deadline 13th March 2015.

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that the Kim Fielding Award announces its inaugural call for submissions, launched last week at a glittering subterranean geisha tea party in Cardiff. The trustees and members of the KFA have been working tirelessly to get to this point, and we are thrilled to be able to put to good use some of the amazing funds raised last year. A huge THANK YOU to all who have contributed and supported the project along the way – we couldn’t have done this without you.

The KFA is seeking applications from creative individuals and groups at any stage of their career, based in the UK or internationally. We are looking for projects that demonstrate some transformative potential for the awardee(s) and some public event element to take place in Cardiff, UK – this may be an exhibition, a performance, or something else entirely. We want to be excited, surprised, inspired and moved, and hope that the award – a package not just of money but of professional support and networking – will somehow make a big difference, as Kim Fielding did for so many.

We urge you to check out full details of the award here  – where there’s also press info if you need it – and to help us spread the word far and wide.
