Opening Reception Thursday 4 September at 5pm

The RDS Student Art Awards has an annual prize fund in excess of €17,000. Encompassing the RDS Taylor Art Award which has been awarded since 1860, the Awards are the most prestigious art awards open to students studying at degree or postgraduate level, enrolled in Irish Art Colleges.

The RDS Student Art Awards aims to provide a platform that supports the transition from student to emerging artist through the Awards and Exhibition. Previous winners of the RDS Student Art Awards include Walter Osborne, William Orpen and James Hanley.

Entries for the awards are encouraged in a diverse range of formats including multimedia, fine art photography, painting, drawing, print-making and installation work. Entrants must adhere to the terms and conditionsof the Awards.

The RDS Student Art Awards continue the long tradition of the Society’s developmental role in supporting and nurturing the creative arts in Ireland. Until 1877, Ireland’s first ‘Drawing School’ was managed by the Society after which it was transferred to the Government and became the National College of Art and Design.

The competition is judged by an expert panel of judges nominated by the Royal Hibernian Academy, the National Gallery of Ireland and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). The panel is chaired by an independent judge nominated by the RDS.

Each year, the winning and commended entries are showcased at the RDS National Craft & Student Art Awards Exhibition during the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show. To see images by previous winners please visit our photo gallery.
