Royal Society of Sculptors Gilbert Bayes Award

The Royal Society of Sculptors is an artist led membership organisation.
They support and connect sculptors throughout their careers and lead the conversation about sculpture today through exhibitions and events for all. The Society was created more than 100 years ago to champion contemporary sculpture and the artists who create it. Today, they welcome everyone interested in exploring this art form and its many possibilities.

Each year, the Royal Society of Sculptors gives out the Gilbert Bayes Award for early career sculptors to outstandingly talented 3D artists. Selected by the Society’s Board and guest judge Touria El Glaoui, Founding Director of 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, the award will give vital support to its recipient during what can be a difficult transition from study to professional practice.

Winners receive a year’s worth of professional development (including talks from guest speakers working in commercial galleries, art charities and private collections), as well as inclusion in a group exhibition. The award is open to sculptors of any age or nationality, with or without formal training and working in any style of media… so, if you want to push your 3D practice further, feel free to learn more via the link below.
