Still a relatively new award,  The John Ruskin Prize has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting and challanging multi-disciplinary art prizes in the UK. Inaugurated in 2012, The Guild of St. George renewed its links with The Big Draw (formerly The Campaign for Drawing) to inaugurate The John Ruskin Prize - open to all artists over 18 working in the UK. The Prize allows us promote and give exposure to the work of emerging artists using a wide range of media and techniques. The Prize’s emphasis on observation reflects John Ruskin’s belief that drawing helps us to see the world more clearly, and therefore take greater heed of its fragility.
