Revolv Collective is celebrating its fifth anniversary with the launch of the Revolv Award.
The prize will support three early-career photo-based artists via a year-long mentorship with Revolv Collective.
In addition to a programme of sessions designed by Revolv Collective, the three selected artists will receive tailored support to develop their practice.
This will include studio visits, portfolio reviews, professional consultations, public speaking experience, an article/interview discussing their practice and ‘mystery prizes’.
Spectrum Photographic is supporting Revolv Award 2022 and offering a prize.
A Revolv Collective spokesman said: “Unfolding over the course of a year, our co-created programme will be designed to build upon the mentees’ artistic skills, cultivate their network and further their practice within the creative sector.
“We understand the difficulties facing early-career artists and find ourselves continually working to overcome the challenges posed by the arts industry.
“Consolidating our real-life experiences and insights, we will provide attentive guidance aimed at nurturing the sustained development of our mentees.
“The Revolv Award is about getting back to doing what we do best: collective learning, building relationships and nurturing growth.”
