Pound has been established as an experiment to see if a micro-scale art funding project can exist solely on the change in our pockets. Pound is an art competition open to everyone and anyone with a simple application process without time-consuming proposals. It is intended as a means of encouraging grass-roots art projects and artistic experimentation.
The winning artist(s) is awarded the ‘pot’ of submission fees collected (£1 per submission) and is expected to invest this money in themselves, their practice, or a new piece of work.
