The 193rd RHA Annual Exhibition, Ireland’s largest and longest running exhibition of visual arts, taking place in 2023 will also launch the RHA bicentenary celebrations. Open to all artists working in paint, drawing, print, sculpture, photography and architecture, and as the RHA turns 200 years old, the 193rd RHA Annual Exhibition will mark a highly significant point in the history of the organisation.
The documentary Exhibitionists: Road to the RHA followed seven artists on their journeys to selection for the 189th Annual in 2019.

Every year, the RHA Annual attracts a large public and critical audience. With sales in excess of €550,000 in 2022, the Annual is a key event of the art calendar for both public and private buyers of all levels.
The open submission is vital to the strength and vitality of the RHA Annual. Works selected through the open submission process make up approximately 60% of the exhibition with the rest of the artworks by RHA Members and Invited Artists. This year over €70,000 of prizes will be awarded to exhibiting artists. This prize fund, one of the largest in Ireland, is awarded to artists recognised for works of achievement. Please read all terms and conditions prior to entering.
