The Fine Art Textiles Award is an international juried exhibition open to all amateur and practising artists using textiles, cloth and thread as their primary medium. The award recognises the creative talents and skills of a broad community of high-calibre artists, including quilters, and celebrates the place of textiles amongst high art. Entries must transcend their craft or making process to stand alone as gallery-quality fine art. A £5,000 prize is presented to the winning artist, with a prize of £500 for Most Innovative Use of Textiles for an artist that demonstrates a particularly complex or powerful approach to the use of textiles.
