The One Show Summer Art Competition - another way exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts

Details of the The One Show Summer Art Competition have been published. This year, if selected, your work could be hung in an exhibition in the Reynolds Room at the Royal Academy at the same time as the 246th Summer Exhibition i.e. between 16 June – 9 August 2014.

Over 700 people entered this competition last year.

12 shortlisted artists in each category (13-17 years old and over 18s) will have their work exhibited at the RA and six finalists in each category will be filmed for The One Show on BBC1.


There are two prizes
  • one for adults i.e. over 18 on 16th April 2014 and 
  • one for teenagers aged between 13 and 17.

Selection criteria

This is the criteria for how entries will be judged.
Works will be judged on the following criteria:
  • Originality
  • Composition
  • Control and use of the chosen medium
  • Ability to follow the guidelines as set out in the Terms and Conditions
Please also note
Following standard industry practice, the BBC may undertake background checks of the shortlisted finalists. The parents or guardians of entrants may be asked questions regarding the entrants and may be asked to sign a declaration on their behalf. Information discovered or that may have been disclosed in this process will inform the decision as to the selection of the finalists.
