The Wildlife Trusts and SWLA collaborated to offer this exciting bursary opportunity. First established in 2007 the Undersea Art Award was a fantastic opportunity for an established artist to learn to dive. Open to any artist with a passion for nature who wanted to find out more about the astonishingly varied submerged landscapes around UK shores. The successful applicants had a selection of their resulting work shown at the annual exhibition and their experiences and art was used to publicise the plight of our marine habitats and the need for protected areas.
This bursary is not available at present but it is hoped that the collaboration will be relaunched in the future.
