The Summer Exhibition, now in its 250th year, is open to professional and amateur artists who, if successful, get to see their work hung alongside that of Royal Academicians like David Hockney, Peter Blake and Tracy Emin. This year around 20,000 works were submitted, of which less than 1000 were hung; they were selected by a jury of RA members under the overall direction of Grayson Perry.
There are 10 prizes awarded for works in different categories; the Hugh Casson prize is for £5000. Sir Hugh Casson was an eminent architect who co-ordinated the Festival of Britain in 1951 and was also a well-known illustrator and President of the Royal Academy.
