Glenfiddich Artist in Residency Program

Now in its fifteenth year, The Glenfiddich Artists in Residence program offers Australian and New Zealand artists the chance to win a prize worth in excess of $20,000 AUD, which includes a three-month residency to live and work at The Glenfiddich Distillery near historic town of Dufftown, Scotland. Glenfiddich's annual Residency Program is open to Australian and New Zealand artists, working across a range of mediums including painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture, installation, multi-media and video work.

The jury, made up of Sydney Contemporary Advisory Council members and Fair Director, will select a shortlist of artists to exhibit at Sydney Contemporary from the 7-10 September at Carriageworks. The winner will be chosen by Andy Fairgrieve, curator of the Residency during the Fair.

Applications close midnight 31 July (Eastern Standard Time).


Since its inception, the Artists in Residence program has seen over 100 artists from 18 countries take part in the summer residency at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. The art created takes inspiration from the distillery, history, heritage, people, and craftsmanship of the surrounding area. Each year a diverse and exciting group of the world’s artists create new, inspirational pieces of art, which are exhibited in the Glenfiddich gallery as a culmination of their time at the distillery. The residency has become widely acclaimed in the art world for providing artists with an original setting, space and community in which to work.
