For the second year ELCAF will be running the ELCAF x WeTransfer Award plus The Audience Award during the festival. The winners for the ELCAF Awards will be announced at 4.00pm on Sunday 17 June.
The ELCAF x WeTransfer Award is a grant that enables artists to see a project come to life. We’ve invited exhibitors past and present to submit a proposal for a project they would love to realise but wouldn’t have the means to do. It might be a large scale book with dye-cut pages or simply an idea they’ve held onto but haven’t had the support to put time into their own vision. We want to see bring creative ideas into the field by giving £3,500 to develop and print a book that will be showcased at ELCAF 2018.
The Audience Award is our way of getting ELCAF exhibitors and audience to celebrate each others work by nominating their favourite publication at the festival. Each exhibitor will nominate their own publication to highlight, it’s up to you to check it out, chat and vote on your favourite. The winner will receive arts materials donated by Cass Art.
Keep an eye out for the #ELCAFAwards. Exhibitors will be highlighting which publication they’re putting forward for nomination.
Winner for the ELCAF x WeTransfer Award was Nicolas Burrows for his publication The Elephant Hotel. The Elephant Hotel will be launching at ELCAF 2017.
