Tom McGrath Maverick Award 2020 application deadline
December 7, 2020
The Maverick Award was set up in memory of Tom McGrath’s well-loved traits as a maverick, inquisitor and explorer. To mark what would have been Tom’s 80th birthday on 23rd October, the Trust is delighted to invite applications for a final round of Awards to celebrate his vibrant contribution to Scotland’s cultural life.
Thanks to the generous financial support of Morven McLean at Original Editions, the Trust is offering 3 Awards, each up to £2,000: two awards will be given as Maverick Awards in memory of Tom, and one will be a Wild Award, to celebrate the unique contribution made by Ella Wildridge to the Trust and to Scotland’s creative community.
Awards will be given to the best applications for a new project, with writing at its heart, that departs from the routine and starts to explore new and imaginative possibilities.
