The RSA MacRobert Art Award for Painting (£20,000) provides a research opportunity for a fine art painter. The aim of the award is to provide the chance for a committed painter whose circumstances have, for whatever reason, made it difficult to focus upon and develop their artistic talent. Whilst the award is financial, the real reward is the opportunity that the funds can directly, or indirectly provide/allow.

The award is funded by the MacRobert Trust and administered by the Royal Scottish Academy and consists of:
– A monetary award to fund a period of research and development for a new body of work within a 12-month period.
– Exhibition of selected completed work, along with other RSA winners, at the Royal Scottish Academy in the following year.

About

To be eligible for the award, entrants must be painters who graduated at least 10 years ago or have at least 10 years of substantive practice. The selected artist must also have been born, or currently living, in Scotland. The award is for artists working in fine art painting of any medium or subject.

– Applications are made through Submittable. Please read the guidelines in full before applying.

– The deadline for submissions is Sunday 23rd June at 5pm.

– The winner will be announced Autumn 2024.
