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 a year's free membership 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 2009. Selection is made by a panel including two Graphic Studio Dublin Board Members and the Studio Director, 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 currently provides facilities for intaglio, lithography and relief print. We have recently installed a large format exposure unit for photo plate lithography and intaglio, and are planning to have digital print in July 2010, and screen-print in 2011.

Applicant's final year exhibition will be assessed together with a portfolio of related work, which must be made available beside their display. A shortlist of applicants will then be asked to attend a short interview on site.
