Public Art Awards
The Public Art Awards will be made by a Two Stage Open Competition. Up to three major Public Art Awards of up to €75,000 each will be made to artists over the life of the commissioning programme. The Public Art Awards will be made to artists proposing particularly ambitious, inspiring and challenging ideas for projects, interventions, artworks and cultural events, of international significance, in Fingal. Experimentation, innovation and working with the myriad of resources found in the county are encouraged.
Shortlisted artists will be given time to develop a worked-up and budgeted proposal for the second stage of the selection process and will be paid a fee of €1,000 on receipt of second stage proposals. The Client reserves the right to invite the shortlist of artists to attend an interview as part of the second stage. The Client reserves the right not to award a commission after the second stage. Artists applying for Strand 1 must submit a non-binding indication of the budget required, which may be up to €75,000 incl VAT.
