2021 marks twenty years since the establishment of the Golden Fleece Award through the bequest of its founder – the artist, educator and researcher Lillias Mitchell (1915-2000).

In honour of this significant milestone, the Golden Fleece Trust have awarded 6 winners this year: Aideen Barry (multimedia / sculpture / installation), Bassam Al-Sabah (multimedia / CGI filmmaking), Laura Fitzgerald (painting / installation / video), Lorna Donlon (tapestry weaving / collage / installation), Maria McKinney (sculpture / multimedia), and Sinead O’Dwyer (fashion design / textiles).
