Ten awards of £6000 are made to cover airfares, fees, living expenses and the cost of mounting an exhibition. The Awards are not intended for photography or graphic design, nor for study leading to a degree, but are open to any other discipline. You can travel to any other Commonwealth country expect between Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Awards are in even numbered years.
