We are delighted that the Rugby Open is back after a break in 2021 and once again we are accepting submissions of all the artwork applications for judging in person.   We look forward to seeing the Youth Category growing and continuing to snap at the heels of the adults in the quality of work.

We are pleased to be able to offer a range of fantastic prizes including:
Overall winner: cash prize plus an exhibition in the Floor One Gallery (prize supported by Rugby Borough Council)
Youth winner: cash prize of £250.00
RAGM People's choice award - £150.00 for the most popular choice awarded by the public.
