Young Sculptor Prize

The Young Sculptor Prize prize is awarded annually to a student(s) of the art colleges with which Kenneth Armitage had particular association: Leeds College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art, where he was a student; Bath Spa University (formerly the Bath Academy of Art, Corsham), where he taught; and the Royal College of Art, where Armitage was a visiting lecturer and tutor.

From 2006 to 2009 the award was presented annually to one student from each college in turn. Since 2010 the prize has been alternated biennially between the London-based post graduate art schools (The Royal College of Art and the Slade) and the regional undergraduate art schools (Bath Spa University and Leeds College of Art). The prize is selected by trustees from the Kenneth Armitage Foundation in consultation with staff from the art colleges. Since the prize was first awarded in 2006, prize-winners have included:
