ACS Drawing Prize 2023
January 18, 2024
ACS is delighted to announce that the 2023 ACS Drawing Prize has been awarded to Olly Williamson.

Williamson fuses real-life observations with imagined scenes in his work. Often combining his bold use of perspective and composition with frequent depictions of family members and the landscape surrounding the village where he grew up, Williamson portrays the natural rhythms and anxieties of everyday life ‘hoping to make the every day feel monumental.’

ACS began a partnership with the Royal Drawing Schools in 2018, to offer a £500 prize to assist a graduate as they move on to the next stage in their careers.⁣ Founded in 2006 by HM King Charles III and artist Catherine Goodman, the Royal Drawing School is an independent, not-for-profit that aims to promote the profile of drawing through teaching and practice.⁣
