Entrance to the Award is by open submission. Proposals should be new works, which respond to the dynamic environment of the London fair; and applicants will be evaluated on the innovative nature of their proposal and its potential for realization. Produced under the guidance of Curator Raphael Gygax and the Frieze Projects team, the Award will include a budget of up to £20,000 for production, research and development, artist fees and travel expenses.

The closing date for applications is 10 February 2016 at 17:00 GMT. Proposals will be reviewed by a selection panel including Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (artist), Beatrix Ruf (Director, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam) and Bettina Steinbrügge (Director, Kunstverein Hamburg), chaired by Jo Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze fairs). The winner will be announced in the Spring of 2016.
