"What can I say about my experience with the EBC graduate award I would be lying if I said it was bad as it wasn’t actually that bad. As a fresh-faced graduate with no real experience exhibiting as an artist the whole award gave me an insight and a first step into working as a professional artist. Not only did I get some amazing exposure (not just locally) but I exhibited with some amazing artists and had a very inspiring experience. Since receiving the award my practice has moved forward massively as just getting out there and continuing being creative has been so beneficial for me. I absolutely recommend applying for this award the EBC guys are amazing you’ll learn to love them and they are both very good looking. Not only will this push your practice but you’ll meet lots of art people. If you want to continue doing art after uni then this is definitely not an opportunity you want to miss."
