Award winners in the 196th Annual Exhibition

From solo exhibitions to assistance from master-printers

The RSA Annual Exhibition is the focal point of our year-round exhibition programme and represents our commitment to supporting excellence in the visual arts in Scotland. 


One of the primary ways in which we offer support to artists is through a variety of awards and prizes, both internal and external. These awards range from solo exhibitions in other galleries, to prizes for the best animal drawing.
