Below you’ll find details of our 2019 exhibitions with entry form deadlines and information on how to enter. You’ll find our entry fees very reasonably priced, and if you become a Friend of the RBSA, there’s no fee at all, plus Friends get their very own exhibition…

Prize exhibition, Portrait Prize, Open All Media, and Print Prize are open to all, and attract entries from across the UK. Friends, Members & Associates, and StArt exhibitions are for artists with RBSA membership.

One of the chief benefits of joining us is that artists bypass entry fees and only pay display fees if their work is selected for certain exhibitions.

The RBSA strives to ensure widespread publicity and sustained promotion of all our exhibitions, both online and through our networks at a regional and national level.

Application forms are made available to download at the respective exhibition pages at the main RBSA website, or you can send in an SAE to the gallery. The same pages will display selection announcements.

Watch out for announcements soon… the quickest way to stay up-to-date is to follow us on Twitter.
