Hermione Hammond £2,000 Drawing Award 2019




The Hermione Hammond Drawing Award is a £2,000 award for current art students to encourage and reward the practice of contemporary representational drawing.

It was established in 2012, in memory of the artist Hermione Hammond (1910-2005), to encourage the practice of representational drawing among art students.

Since 2017, it has been run in partnership with Mall Galleries, which hosts a diverse programme of exhibitions and events, and is home to the Federation of British Artists. The Award has so far been given to five art students, Rupert Smissen (Norwich University of the Arts, 2012), Philip Adamson (Northumbria University, 2013), Magi Kemp (Edinburgh College of Art, 2014), Gideon Summerfield (Royal Drawing School, 2017), and Martin Karpisz, professionally known as Siguel (Glasgow School of Art, 2018).

The Head Judge for 2019 is artist Charles Williams, member of the New English Art Club and Royal Watercolour Society, and author of ‘Basic Drawing: How to Draw What You See’. Charles will judge the entries alongside the award's Trustees and representatives from Mall Galleries / Federation of British Artists.

Entry is FREE. Please visit the website for details, including how to submit.
