The RBSA Drawing Prize

The RBSA Drawing Prize

The RBSA Drawing Prize invites artists whose practice is rooted in drawing to enter work.

This is a technique prize, meaning that we invite entries from artists working in all styles and mediums, the only restriction is that the technique must be drawing. All drawing practices are welcome, including digital drawing and 3D works, and we welcome entries from professional and emerging artists from across the region and beyond.

Selection for the Drawing Prize is by digital image of the original artwork only. All works entered go through the same selection process which is based on the assessment of the quality and interest of each work.

This year’s exhibition will be selected by:

  • Barbara Walker MBE RA – Turner Prize Nominee 2023
  • Kate Mason – Cultural leader and changemaker – across arts, heritage, cultural and creative sectors
  • Steve Bulcock – Deputy Head of Institute of Creative Arts at Birmingham City University

Prizes:
First Prize: £1000
