Upland is delighted to announce a new design commission for Spring Fling 2022 (2-5 June 2022).

This commission is for a visual artist or maker that has taken part in Spring Fling at any time over the last 20 years. However, the selected artist or maker does not have to be taking part in the 2022 event.

The commission should be a multiple with a small, bespoke run. For example, it could take the form of a print, small ceramic, glassware object etc. The item should visually represent Spring Fling but does not have to be too literal. We are open to ideas for this commission and welcome discussion in advance of submission.

The total amount payable to the successful applicant for this commission is £1500.

The multiple will be sold as part of Spring Fling 2022. Upland will deal with all sales and the selected applicant will receive a commission rate as agreed with Upland.

Submissions will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • concept/proposed idea
  • quality of work
  • connection to Spring Fling
  • commercial viability

Deadline for applications: 5pm, Wednesday 1st December 2021
