The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art invites submissions for its 2022 Annual Open Exhibition. Dedicated to encouraging and portraying diversity within art, both 2D and 3D work in any medium is welcome. All successful submissions will be exhibited in our beautiful gallery in Conwy, 8th January – 26th February, as well as online viewing and sales through our website.

We have again the Selector’s Prize of £1000, awarded by the Academy and Friends of the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art. Our exciting People’s Choice Prize remains at £100 and this year we are offering a discipline prize, the Lawrenson Sculpture Award £500. Renowned sculptor Diane Lawrenson RCA is offering the prize to support her chosen art form.
