Graduate Award

Annual Graduate Award Scheme

Each year Graphic Studio Dublin offers a number of Internship awards to graduates of Dublin fine art educational institutions and third level colleges specialising in print. Internship awards offer up to a year's access to the studio, materials and technical guidance and assistance. This award is vital to the continuing existence of the studio. Graphic Studio Dublin relies on its membership for artistic development and ideas for projects. The internship encourages the enrolment of young artists, and provides mentorship linking a student's college course with professional art practice in a working environment that will protect and encourage their development as an individual printmaker.

The selection process begins with graduate degree shows in May and June. Selection is made by a panel, including representation from the board of Graphic Studio Dublin, the Studio Director, and the gallery manager, in conjunction with the Department Heads of various fine art educational institutions and third level colleges specialising in print. Internships commence in September with an induction day. Participating colleges include Dublin Institute of Technology, Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology and the National College of Art & Design.

Graphic Studio Dublin provides facilities for intaglio, lithography, screen print, letterpress and relief print.

Applicant's final year exhibition will be assessed together with a portfolio of related work, which must be made available beside their display.
