The Fellowship distinction requires applicants to submit a body of work/project consisting of 20 or 21 and a written Statement of Intent. Submissions are open to everyone (New for 2020).
The Fellowship distinction is split into various specialist areas, which we refer to as genres. Many of the genres have additional specific criteria. It is important to read through the Fellowship guidelines for further information.
