Competition for emerging stained glass artists

The British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP) has announced a competition to design and make a stained glass window for the RAF Club in London’s Piccadilly.

The competition is open to emerging artists of any age resident in the UK who have yet to undertake major commissions and expressions of interest are needed by 12 January 2024.

Up to four artists will be selected from the applicants to visit the site and produce a design, with each artist receiving a modest fee of £300. The selected artists will be paired with an experienced mentor to help guide them through the process.

The brief is to depict the badge of the RAF Auxiliary Squadron and the choice of technique is open, from traditional to modern.

Shortlisted applicants will be announced on 2 February 2024 and will be invited to visit the RAF Club the following week. Designs must be submitted by the end of March.

A judging panel of representatives drawn from the BSMGP, the RAF Club, the Royal Auxiliary Air Force and the Beaverbrook Foundation (who are funding the commission) will select the winning design from the shortlisted entries.

The winning piece must be completed by the middle of July 2024.

All entrants must be BSMGP members. Anyone wishing to take part who is not yet a member can join here.
