2019 Golden Fleece Award Invite for applications

The Golden Fleece Award is an independent artistic prize fund established as a charitable bequest by the late Helen Lillias Mitchell.

According to Lillias’s wish, the Trustees of the Award include members of Lillias’s family, professional fund managers and arts managers who work closely together to help run the award along the lines that she wished for. They are supported by a distinguished advisory panel whose knowledge and experience are invaluable in guiding the development of the Award. The panel comprises Patrick T. Murphy, Director of the Royal Hibernian Academy (Chairperson of the panel); jewellery designer, curator and educator Angela O’Kelly; graphic artist Robert Russell; painter Eoin Mac Lochlainn; and Dara O’Leary, who is Arts Programme Manager with the RDS.

All applications must be made online.

The closing deadline for entries is 2 pm on Friday 23rd November 2018.

The overall fund for the 2019 Award is in the region of €20,000.
