192nd RHA Annual Exhibition 2022 Award Winners 

The 192nd RHA Annual Exhibition 2022 is Ireland's largest and longest running exhibition of visual art. This year, the RHA saw a total of 4038 works of art submitted from which, following a rigorous two rounds of selection, 567 works, including members and those invited, are currently exhibited throughout all gallery spaces.

Over €70,000 in prizes were awarded to emerging, mid-career and senior artists, across mediums including painting, photography, sculpture and architecture. RHA President, Dr Abigail O'Brien, said that in this year:

" We are fortunate to witness a selection of varied and unique voices speaking out the truth of their creators. I call on us all to take the front seat - to continue to make work without the security of a consensus or societal approval."
