Dámhachtain Sparánachta Litríochta don Ghaeilge
The Arts Council’s Dámhachtain Sparánachta Litríochta don Ghaeilge award aims to support professional writers and picture book artists who primarily work in the Irish language.
The primary objective of this bursary is to provide writers and picture book artists with the resources and financial freedom to engage in crucial aspects of their creative process. It enables them to focus on activities such as reflection, research, conceptualisation, and writing.
Recipients of the Dámhachtain Sparánachta Litríochta don Ghaeilge award are granted a period of dedicated time to concentrate on their creative work, allowing them to immerse themselves in their projects without the burden of financial commitments.
The selection process for the award includes both a shortlisting and panel stage, where the track record of the applicant, as demonstrated through the application form and CV, is given significant consideration. Additionally, the application form and writing sample are assessed for promise, potential, and artistic merit.
The award offers a maximum grant of €20,000 to support their creative endeavors.
