2017 First@108: Public Art Award
The Royal British Society of Sculptors is excited to announce that the 2017 FIRST@108: Public Art Award is now open for entries, providing a unique opportunity for sculptors to extend their practice into competing for public art commissions.
The award is open to any artist working in 3 dimensions in any media who has not yet won an open (or closed) competition for a commission to create a work for a public space above the value of Â£15,000.
The winning sculptor is awarded Â£10,000 towards the cost of producing a temporary public artwork for the RBS forecourt on the theme of â€˜The Poetics of Structureâ€™. Open to multiple interpretations and approaches, the theme lends itself to responses from artists interested in the structural and the engineered as a way to convey meaning.

Closing deadline: 5pm, Friday 6th January 2017
This award is made possible by the generous support of the Mirisch & Lebenheim Charitable Foundation.
