The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award (MTSA) is the most significant award for emerging artists working in the field of sculpture in the UK. It is unique in its combination of offering £10,000 in financial support towards the production of new work, plus a solo exhibition to an exceptional sculptor.

The MTSA seeks to reward outstanding and innovative practice, with a particular interest in work that demonstrates a commitment to process, or sensitivity to material. There is no age limit, applicants will be judged on the quality of their work and the ability of the award to make beneficial impact on their practice and future development. The award also includes a national touring programme, taking MTSA artists to partner venues across the UK.

The selection panel for 2024-25 is: 

Alice Channer, Artist

Gemma Brace, Head of Exhibitions, Arnolfini

Rebecca Scott, Mark Tanner Trust and Director, Cross Lane Projects

Steph Huang, MTSA winner 2023-24
