Submissions have closed for 2024

Online exhibition opens 16 July

Now in its sixth year, the Young Artists’ Summer Show is a free, open submission exhibition for students aged 4–19 studying in the UK. Artworks are judged by a panel of artists and arts professionals, with selected artworks displayed online and on-site at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Submissions have now closed for 2024; thank you to everyone who submitted artwork. Our judges will be making their selection soon and we’ll share the results with participants by the end of May.

Check back from 16 July to see the 2024 online exhibition, and come to London to see the artworks selected for display at the Royal Academy from 16 July – 11 August.
