The awards are named after BBC Radiophonic Workshop co-founder Daphne Oram and “hope to build on her legacy.”

Two winners will receive bursaries of £1000 each and six winners will receive bursaries of £500.

The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday June 3 at the Turner Contemporary Margate as part of Canterbury Christchurch University’s Oscillate Festival.
