During the last year we have offered our members a number of member-only exhibition opportunities alongside partners, for example Grizedale Forest in the Lake District, Spotlight with Brooke Benington at Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer, a residency at Thread, Senegal with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, and a selling exhibition here at the Society’s headquarters in South Kensington, London.
  • Discover the latest opportunities, both member-only and from across the sector, in our weekly members’ newsletter. Our members’ newsletter includes national and international paid opportunities which average £150,000 per week.
  • Promote your work online in our searchable directory of members’ portfolios.
  • Publicise your exhibitions and events online in Our Sculptors On View.
  • Access our online members’ area to connect with fellow sculptors – both virtually on the noticeboards and in person, via the Connect Groups which meet for studio tours and talks.

  • Feature in the Society’s archive.
  • Develop your practice with the support of the Society’s fellows as part of our mentor scheme.

The entrant also promises to comply with these rules and any other award requirements specified by the Society (whether on its website or otherwise) and the Society reserves its right to exclude any entry which in its opinion does not comply.

All applications must be made using the online form and all fields must be completed. No hard copy applications will be accepted. Proof of submission is not proof of receipt. Applications must be received by the closing time and date specified. No responsibility can be accepted for applications which are incomplete, delayed or not received for whatever reason. Regrettably incomplete applications will not be submitted to the selection committee for review and will therefore be classed as an unsuccessful application.
