Gospel Green Fringe Bursary

To mark their 30th birthday, Gospel Green are offering Deptford X Fringe artists the chance to design a festival edition bottle label and win a £500 Fringe bursary.

UPDATE: In light of recent circumstances we will be altering the parameters of this open call.

More details will follow.


Gospel Green will once again be the official drinks partner for Deptford X Festival and this year they are on the hunt for a Fringe artist to design a limited edition Deptford X bottle label to mark their 30th birthday. The winning artist will have their design printed in a limited run and featured on drinks bottles to be distributed and sold throughout the festival. They will also receive a £500 bursary to spend on their 2020 Fringe project.

Applications are open to anyone who meets the following criteria: 

  • Applicants must be over 18 years old.
  • £500 prize money is for participation in 2020 Fringe; therefore, you must supply an outline of your Fringe project idea as part of your application.

  • Artists must be available on 14th May & 9th July.
  • Submit your Gospel Green application form by the 30th April 2020.

Application process:

  • Stage 1: Artists complete a short application form of four questions (Deadline: 30th April 2020)
  • Stage 2: Artists are shortlisted by Deptford X and three finalists are selected by Gospel Green. These artists are taken on a site visit to Gospel Green in Hampshire (14th May)
  • Stage 3: The three finalists present their label designs and Fringe ideas to a judging panel of Deptford X and Gospel Green representatives (9th July). A single winner is chosen.

The winning artist will receive:
