The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) seeks the best in contemporary watercolour and watermedia painting. Since its foundation in 1831, the RI has promoted the essentially English art of watercolour. The RI was formed to exhibit the best watercolours and to show non-members’ works alongside that of members, a policy still followed today.
Any artist over 18 may submit.
Acceptable media: Watercolour or water-soluble mediums, including watercolour, acrylic, ink or gouache (excluding water-soluble oils).

The Winsor & Newton Award of £3,000
