About this exhibition

The RBSA Photography Prize exhibition invites artists creating work in the photographic medium to enter. We welcome entries from professional and emerging artists based in the UK and internationally. There are 4 prizes to be won including £1,000 1st Prize, £500 2nd Prize, £250 3rd Prize and a solo exhibition at the RBSA Gallery.

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

Frame Creatives Second Prize: £500
