“The show brings a fascinating array of subjects, so there will be something for everyone. What I particularly like about the RPS competition is that anybody can apply, so it is a very wide open call and everybody can have a go. The Society is run by the world’s leading experts in the field, so you can be certain that whatever they chose in the top 100 will be cutting-edge high-quality work.

“The winners in this year’s exhibition display some very strong environmental themes, so we very much hope that the show will generate some interest and debate about these crucial themes. Most of all, I hope this exhibition will be an uplifting experience for our visitors. Many of us could not travel as much as we’d like to during this pandemic year, but this exhibition will take us on a wondrous journey all around the globe!”
