Glass Sellers and CGS Glass Prize for graduates from 2020 and 2021

All contemporary glass students graduating from a British or Irish accredited course in 2020 and 2021 are eligible to enter the 2021 Graduate Prize, with the opportunity to be featured in the CGS’s New Graduate Review publication and an online exhibition on the CGS website. Graduates from both years can take part, as the 2020 prize was cancelled owing to the pandemic.
