First Plinth: Public Art Award 2019 is designed to offer sculptors an opportunity to extend their practice into competing for public art commissions. The winning sculptor is awarded £10,000 to produce a large-scale sculpture for the sculpture terrace at Dora House before moving to a second site at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The award theme is Progress. This biannual award is open to any artist working in three dimensions, providing a unique and rare opportunity for the winner to build a track record in the competitive arena of public art. The fabrication of the winning work is supported by the award, with the winner receiving mentoring from a team of experienced professionals to ensure the concept is delivered to the exacting standards required of work to be installed in public spaces.
