THE MENTORSHIP SCHEME
This year, for the first time, we are offering this scheme in addition to the exhibition opportunity. A number of mentorships will be awarded to finalists, who will be matched with a mentor whose professional/ creative background is relevant to their practice. The mentor and graduate will enter into a yearlong dialogue, offering participants invaluable feedback on their current work and the broader professional and critical context into which it fits.

APPLICATIONS
All applications must be submitted through this site by 18.00, Monday 2 July 2012
