Round 1: Now Closed

Stay Tuned - Next Round Pending!


About our Award

The Axisweb Project Commission seeks to support members who require additional resources and support to develop and disseminate their ideas.

There will be two rounds of the Project Commission in 2020 supporting two awards, one per round. Successful recipients each receive £1,000 and access to advice and support from Axisweb staff / Trustees. 


What we are looking for

This is an outcome focused opportunity for an artist to complete and disseminate a current project. 

You will be able to evidence research and development for the project.

It is important that you already have ideas for dissemination, such as:

  • Engagement - who the primary audience is

  • Format - what format your output takes

  • Context - understanding how and why your project is relevant

Applicants must be able to indicate how the proposed project relates to the development of their artistic practice. We are especially interested in artists that can demonstrate why it is the right time in their artistic career for them to receive this support. 


What we are offering

£1000 to help develop and complete an artistic project.

Mentoring and advice from the Axisweb team.

An artist film produced by Axisweb, plus promotion through our website and social media platforms (This is only available to UK based artists).



In your application you must: 

  • Evidence a strong and consistent body of work and independent practice. 

  • Evidence an existing project where you require a timely intervention of our award to complete and disseminate

  • Be a member of Axisweb. To find out more click here.

We especially welcome applications from artists of diverse backgrounds. 

Applications are open to individuals and collaborative groups as long as all applicants are members.

Through out 2020 we will be announcing additional Award Streams for our members.
