Spotlight is an exciting annual collaboration between the Royal Society of Sculptors and the William Benington Gallery (WBG) which awards a Society member with a solo exhibition in a commercial contemporary gallery in London.

This year we have added a new twist to the format: the winner will show at WBG’s Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer, a sculpture garden in Buckinghamshire, a short distance from the capital.


This year’s winner is Marco Miehling

About the prize

A new area of woodland has been opened out to create an environment for a single large work or a series of works creating a solo installation. The Spotlight exhibition will be included on the route taken by all visitors to the gardens, but its situation is separate and distinct from the rest of the trail.

The successful applicant will be receive mentoring from WBG Director George Marsh regarding the process of developing and executing an exhibition with a contemporary gallery, as well as drafting the exhibition text, and overseeing practical matters such as transport and installation.

This award is generously supported by the William Benington Gallery.
