One of the highlights of the Royal Bath and West Show is the Art Exhibition held in the Arts Centre every year. Part of the Exhibition is made up of the works of the Society Art Scholar, a scholarship awarded bi-annually and in addition to prize money, the artist has the unique opportunity to exhibit a selection of their work at the Show.

Are you a practising young artist between the ages of 18 – 30 years old who is inspired by “Rural Life in the UK”? You can win a Scholarship worth £2000 to help further your career and to have your own exhibition in our gallery and the Royal Bath & West Show with the opportunity to sell your work.

A second award of £250 is also available.
