QEST Sanderson Rising Star craft award

Do you know a UK-based emerging maker worthy of recognition who you would like to nominate for an impressive award?

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) is collaborating with international luxury interior furnishings brand Sanderson, to launch a prestigious new prize, the ‘QEST Sanderson Rising Star Craft Award’.

This prize will recognise an emerging talent who is making a positive contribution to their craft, the wider craft sector and community. This person will be a committed maker who has been practising professionally in their craft field for between two and seven years.

It is open to craftspeople across the UK and offers a career-changing cash prize of £25,000.

Makers must be nominated by a credible person – which includes craft industry professionals, tutors, colleagues, peers or others who must know the maker and their work well in a professional capacity.

Please note: nominators can only put forward one candidate for the award.

Nominations close on Friday 17 May 2024 and the winner will be announced in October.
