Royal Cambrian Academy


We are delighted to announce, that following a period of closure due to the Covid pandemic, our membership application process is now reopening for 2022.

In line with changes agreed at the Academy's AGM in 2019, artists may initially only apply to become Associates of the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art.

Associate members may then apply to become full Academicians after a period of 2 years as an Associate member.

Artists may submit their application at any time during the year on the understanding that applications will be considered at the first AGM following receipt of the application.

It is anticipated that the AGM in 2022 will take place in September. Applications should be submitted at least one month before the date of the AGM to allow us time to process.

The following application forms and guidance documents are now available for downloading:
