The MCD Arts Prize for Sculpture

Sculptors! Specifically sculptors under the age of 35! Do you fancy working with a redevelopment company responsible for turning our old industrial buildings into luxury flats? Well, here’s your chance!

I joke. Note that the deadline for this is June 29th.

As one of the UK’s leading urban regeneration specialists, MCD are committed to creating vibrant residential and commercial schemes within which people enjoy living, working and relaxing.

MCD believe that the transformation from run down or derelict areas into environments which provide these opportunities successfully, depends not only upon good architectural design and attention to the finer aesthetic details of the development such as use of materials, lighting and landscaping but also upon internal and external visual impact which enhances every day life on a deeper level.

Within our company philosophy is the belief that the Arts have an important role to play in accomplishing this aim and over the years MCD has commissioned many individual works by selected up and coming artists, for display within offices and residential areas.

The MCD Arts Prize 2007 is intended to further this relationship and offers an opportunity for local students of sculpture to be selected by a distinguished panel of experts for a work to be commissioned by the company for display within a residential courtyard.

The winner gets £2000 and their piece “funded and commissioned by MCD with all materials supplied, suitable for external display” in the Kings Edwards Wharf residential courtyard.
