Successful applicants will receive:
– A fee of up to £1,000
– An international platform to exhibit your light work
– Support from an Artichoke Producer and Production Manager to realise your BRILLIANT idea
And more… 

You don’t need to be a practising artist or have any previous experience to apply to BRILLIANT. You just need a bright idea. 

Who can apply?
– Anyone aged over 18
– Anyone currently living in the UK

The closing date for applications is Sunday 19 February 2023, 11:59pm.

Artichoke is committed to broadening the diversity of those working in the medium of light art and encourages applications from people who are currently under-represented in our BRILLIANT alumni, including people of colour and people who identify as d/Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent.
