About the Award
The Morton Award is for artists working in lens-based media and is administered by the Royal Scottish Academy and funded by the Morton Charitable Trust. It consists of a monetary award of £4,300 to develop and produce a new work in a lens based medium around a theme selected by the Royal Scottish Academy, and an exhibition of the completed new work at the RSA Annual Exhibition in 2009.

The Royal Scottish Academy is delighted to have secured a grant from the Morton Charitable Trust for new commissions by artists who were born in or are currently living and working in Scotland. The Morton Award will support artists in developing new works in photography or film loosely based on a theme concerning cultural, socio-economic, environmental or political developments in Scotland. Each year, the works by the Morton Award winner will be showcased at the RSA Annual Exhibition.

A short list of artists will be invited to present their project to the Panel of Adjudicators at the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh. Adjudicators for this year are Arthur Watson RSA, Calum Colvin RSA, Marion Smith RSA and Colin R Greenslade, Programme Director, RSA
