RBSA Portrait Prize

ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

The RBSA’s Portrait Prize provides an opportunity for a wide variety of portrait artists to show their artwork and be rewarded for their talents through a range of prizes.  Following on from our 2019 Portrait Prize, the RBSA is excited to extend the scope of the exhibition to include photography and digital artwork.  All styles and genres of portraiture are eligible for this exhibition.

The following prizes will be awarded:

  • First prize £1000 sponsored by GMC
  • Second prize £500 sponsored by Galliard Apsley Partnership
  • Third prize £250 sponsored by Judd Medical
  • Student prize £250 sponsored by RBSA Member
  • Up to six highly commended certificates will also be awarded

All mediums are accepted, including photography and digital work, and we welcome submissions from artists both national and international.

Selection for the Portrait Prize is by digital image of the original artwork only.  All works entered go through the same selection process.  No artists, including Members & Associates of the RBSA, are automatically selected.

This year’s exhibition will be selected by:
