About this exhibition

The RBSA Photography Prize exhibition is open to all UK and International artists creating work in the photographic medium.

Launched in 2015, this biennial exhibition celebrates artists at all stages of their career, representing a spectrum of photographic practice

The Photography Prize exhibition will be on display both in the RBSA Gallery and online to ensure access to those who want to enjoy the exhibition from home.


Selection for the Photography 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.

All entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of independent judges who will make their selection based on the quality and technique of the work.

Selected artists will be emailed which works have been selected on Friday 9 July before 4pm. Please do NOT contact the Gallery before this time


This year’s exhibition will be selected by Jennie Anderson, Director of Argentea Gallery, Nicola Shipley, Director, GRAIN Projects and Stephen J Morgan, Artist.
