Currently in its third year, the Fleming-Wyfold Bursary is an annual award for an artist exhibiting in the graduate shows of the five Scottish art schools. The winner receives £10,000 with an additional £4,000 production fee for a new work, and a year’s mentoring with independent curator Susanna Beaumont.  The work produced with the award by the 2015 winner, video artist Edward Humphrey, is also included in the exhibition.

The judges were James Knox (Director, Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation), Vincent Honoré (Director, DRAF); Susanna Beaumont (independent curator), Kevin Harman (artist based in Edinburgh) and Bill Smith (former Director, the Fleming Collection).

The Fleming–Wyfold Bursary and exhibition New Scottish Artists are run in collaboration with the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.
