WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW PRIZE FOR 2019 FOR THE BRITISH GLASS BIENNALE.

The British Glass Biennale is delighted to announce a new prize for 2019

The Glass Arts Society have confirmed they will sponsor an ‘International Artists Award’ with a fantastic prize of $1,500.
Founded in 1971 The Glass Art Society (GAS) is a Seattle-based non-profit, international organization whose purpose is to encourage excellence, to advance education, to promote the appreciation and development of the glass arts, and to support the worldwide community of artists who work with glass. GAS is made up of a membership of over 2,000 glass enthusiasts from over 40 countries.

This International Artists Award marks the start of an exciting new collaboration with the British Glass Biennale.

The winning piece will be selected by the GAS board and announced at the opening ceremony on 22 August. The prize winner will also benefit from joint promotions by GAS, the British Glass Biennale and the International Festival of Glass and be invited to present at the GAS Conference in 2020.

The selection will be made from the digital images of work submitted by the Biennale artists. All works selected by the Biennale jury and shown in the exhibition are eligible.
Janine Christley, Director of the International Festival of Glass said “I am so delighted with this new collaboration. GAS was such an inspiration when we launched the British Glass Biennale and I have long admired their commitment to glass artists across the world. This is a momentous day for the Biennale.”

Brandi P. Clark, Interim Executive Director stated “Supporting artists from all over the globe is at the core of the Glass Art Society's mission, and working with the International Festival of Glass for the British Glass Biennale is a great opportunity for us to support international artists in a new and significant way. We are thrilled with this new partnership!”
