The Cordis Prize for Tapestry 2021

£8000 prize rewarding scale and ambition in woven tapestry

The Cordis Trust is delighted to invite submissions for the fifth Cordis Prize for Tapestry. The aim of the prize is to reward ambitious, innovative and skilled use of tapestry weaving techniques. We hope that the prize will attract international entries from established artists working in the field of contemporary tapestry. We are looking for works that are essentially woven - they should reference traditional Gobelin techniques, but need not be wholly constructed using this method. Works need not necessarily be two dimensional or wall hung, we hope to encourage ambitious and non-conventional applications of tapestry weaving and the use of alternative materials.
