The Rouse Kent Public Art Award was born put of a desire to encourage public art in Kent - a goal shared by its

sponsors, Kent County Council, Liberty Property Trust UK (formerly Rouse Kent) and Arts Council England, South East. 

The Award is made annually to acknowledge the best example of public art commissioned and completed in the county

each year. The purpose of the Award is to focus public attention on the benefits of public art and to stimulate the

commissioning of new work in urban and rural areas of Kent. Nominations are invited from the people of the county and

co-ordinated by Kent County Council, Cultural Development. Judging is carried out in spring by a panel comprising the

sponsors and relevant art experts; each year chaired by a special guest from the art world, who presents the Award at

the celebration dinner. Web Link
