Whitegold International Ceramic Prize 2020

The Whitegold International Ceramic Prize 2020 has launched. The 2020 Whitegold International Ceramic prize will be awarded to excellent projects that enable convivial community interactions through their engagement with food and clay.

The prize is open to artists and artist collectives from across the world including collaborations between artists, cooks, brewers and food producers.

Artists, partnerships or collectives are invited to submit two recent projects that demonstrate their work with the inter-relationships of people, clay, soil and food. The Whitegold 2020 jury will then select five artists or groups to develop a proposal for a community project in St Austell that brings clay, food and people together in a convivial way.

The object of the Whitegold Project is to raise the profile of St Austell as a world recognised destination for art and clay, an attraction for visitors from across the globe. Our vision is to work with artists, makers and designers to celebrate past and present, and create future stories of china clay and the communities who live with it, inspiring people in and around the district to develop their creative potential and the area’s future sustainability.
