Previous winners of the Freelands Award are MK Gallery with Ingrid Pollard; Hepworth Wakefield with Hannah Starkey; Spike Island with Veronica Ryan; Nottingham Contemporary with Lis Rhodes; and Fruitmarket Gallery with Jacqueline Donachie.

Eligibility: UK-based visual arts organisation outside of London; registered with the Charities Commission; with a minimum of 20,000 per year, minimum of £500,000 per year, and a minimum of 180 sqm of permanent exhibition space.

What you get out of it: £100,000 award to realise a forthcoming exhibition by a mid-career female artist, plus a fee of £25,000 for the selected artist.
