Wildlife Trusts Diving Bursary Open for Applicants

An artist prepared to take the plunge and seek inspiration beneath the waves is being sought by The Wildlife Trusts and the Society of Wildlife Artists.

The organisations’ Undersea Art Award provides a bursary for an established artist to learn to dive and then to work underwater off the UK coast, recording the wildlife of the sea. The artist has the opportunity to exhibit art inspired by marine life at the SWLA’s annual exhibition in the Mall Galleries.

Now in its seventh year, the Undersea Art Award has inspired stunning works which raise awareness of the plight of our marine life from around the UK coast and range from paintings to sculpture.
