We're delighted to offer this Award to support one winning artist build an outstanding art career.

After five years' running our professional development programme, we understand all too well that you have your own specific needs when it comes to advancing your career. Accordingly, the BSAA Award presents a menu of options, enabling you to select the support that will best support your present stage of career. 

The winner will be offered a menu of three options compiled from the BSAA programme and given a 20 minute conversation with a dedicated BSAA Team Member. This will give you an opportunity to talk through which offerings, from one-to-one support to partaking in the members' community, are the best fit. 

The Award is open to NOA17’s 130 selected artists and has a monetary value of £500.
