Four artists have been announced as the winners of funding for an Aberdeen festival.
Craig Barrowman, Fiona McCubbin, Janet McEwan and Allan Watson will each get £3,000 after coming out on top in the Look Again Seed Fund.
They will use the cash to make some of their ideas become a reality and form a key part of the Look Again festival, which begins in April.
Sally Reaper, art and design festival director, said: “The successful applicants specialise in very different disciplines within visual art and design so it’ll be fascinating to watch how their chosen projects take shape.
“We were very keen to encourage home grown talent back to the city and are delighted to see talented individuals, who were either born here or studied here, returning to showcase new work.
“Look Again not only strives to be a leading festival on the Scottish art and design scene but also wants to support established and new artists to produce new work so that many more great ideas can become visible.”
Debuting in 2015, the Look Again festival is spearheaded by Robert Gordon University and Aberdeen-based art agency – SMART.
Celebrating the best of visual art and design, it aims to challenge the way we see the Granite City and put the North-east on the map as a centre of excellence for innovative and imaginative projects.
Organisers called for established and emerging artists and designers to apply for support from its first Seed Fund in December.
Supported by Aberdeen City Council, the cash was open to North-east artists and designers at any stage of their creative careers.
It is hoped the initiative will encourage more artwork to be produced and shared across any publicly owned streets, pathways, parks and open spaces.
All of the winners have a North-east connection, although some have moved away from the region.
The event takes place from Thursday, April 27, to Monday, May 1.
