FREE PICTURE: Glenfiddich Art Award Winner at Royal Scottish Academy New Contemporaries Art Exhibition 2023, Edinburgh, Fri 17/03/2023: Young artist digs for victory in major Scottish art prize: A young artist who digs up her own clay to make her sculptures has been announced as the winner of Scotland’s biggest prize for emerging art.  Edinburgh-based Lorna Phillips (pictured with her work, aged 23), has won the 2023 Glenfiddich (correct) Residency Prize, which is worth £15,000, an increase in value of 50 per cent this year. The prize is awarded annually at the RSA New Contemporaries exhibition in Edinburgh which is regarded as the leading showcase of emerging art and architecture in Scotland.  Lorna’s clay objects, made from material she has dug up herself in different parts of the country, have been described by the Glenfiddich judges as “a clean and pure celebration of form”.  Her prize is a fully funded three-month residency on the prestigious Glenfiddich Artists in Residence (AiR) programme at the distillery in Dufftown this summer, alongside artists from all over the world. She will receive a £5,000 fee and £10,000 production budget.
