Gilchrist-Fisher Award

The Gilchrist-Fisher Award was established in memory of Alasdair Gilchrist-Fisher, who died of cancer in December 1986 at the age of twenty-four

He was a remarkable young man whose wit, intelligence, enthusiasm and love of life won him many friends and presaged a great future.

Soon after his illness was diagnosed he began a postgraduate art course, finding much joy in the discovery and exploration of landscape painting.

It was to celebrate Alasdair’s life – and this particular connection – that his friends raised a fund to establish the Gilchrist-Fisher Award.


The deadline for entries for the 2018 Gilchrist-Fisher Award has now passed.

The next Award will be made in 2020. Applications will be welcome from January 2019. The prize for the winner is £6000.
