How does it help the artists?
Thanks to the kind support of Island based financial advisers Rouse Ltd the winner of the public vote gets their hands on a handcrafted trophy and a £500 cash prize to help support their work. The winner is also able to use the accolade to help promote ongoing tours of their work so it really does make a difference.
The award was launched in 2021 following conversations with Rouse LTD who were keen to support artists at the festival. CEO Ben Rouse explained “Home-grown events have the potential to become major attractions and if we get the opportunity to support a sound idea then we welcome that. The Island has long been known for its creativity and Rouse Ltd is keen to help nurture and develop that.”
