Emerging Artist of the Year award 2016

Emerging Artist of the year award 2016

This is again that time of the year when we are buzzing with lots of activity around, emails coming in, phone is ringing with the queries What is the last date of uploading the art works? Whats the procedure .. is there any different application process to apply for this award program? 

Anxiety and excitement  all around and needless to say; we enjoy the sincerity of the artists and their enthusiasm!

EAY 2016 is the 5th edition of a very successful tradition started by and supported by #Glenfiddichindia since its inception stage. Though, Glenfiddich has been supporting art globally for a longer time and have been inviting artist for attending the residency from almost over 17 countries. We began our journey in year 2012 with Juhika Devi Bhanjdeo being our first winner who went and won lots of appreciation post her residency program for the work she did at Scotland and back here in India. The same continued with Yuvan Bothisathuvar, Chennai based artist in spite of huge language barrier but with his grit and sheer hard work, he learnt a great deal.
Chetnaa Verma was a third edition winner and forth edition (last year winner) was Krupa Makhija and is currently preparing for her solo show at one of the most contemporary art space 'Art District XIII, here at New Delhi.
This is indeed a phenomenal platform for any young artist to showcase their art work and get an opportunity to work along with several other international artists. An online initiative supporting young Indian artist has come a long way and its just a beginning.
