Glenfiddich® Single Malt Whisky is issuing an Open Call to Artists currently living and working in Canada to enter the internationally renowned competition for the prestigious 2017 Glenfiddich® Artists in Residence Prize.
The Canadian winner will be one of eight artists worldwide to be awarded the coveted prize to live and work at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. The three-month summer residency is valued at $20,000 CDN per artist. Now in its 16th year, the program covers the cost of travel, living expenses and materials throughout the residency.
While living in crofts (traditional small Scottish farm houses), artists are encouraged to take inspiration from the unique setting in the Scottish Highlands. The experience provides an opportunity unlike any other for artists to work in an international community, share in a dialogue with other artists and foster cross-disciplinary ideas.
Online submissions open Wednesday, December 7, 2016 and must be received by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) Wednesday, January 25, 2017 (Robbie Burns day).
