What a spectacular year 2022 is for the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS). From humble beginnings 25 years ago, it has grown over the years into a thriving and proactive society supporting a membership of over 1,100. CGS supports and promotes both contemporary glass art and contemporary glass artists in the UK. 2022 is also the UN designated International Year of Glass.
As part of their ambition to support emerging graduates at the beginning of what they hope is a long career in glass making, CGS offers an annual Graduate Prize and produces the New Graduate Review, featuring the work of some of the best of the UK’s glass art graduates emerging from British Universities. To enable CGS to do this, they receive funding and support from the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London Charity Fund together with Professor Michael Barnes MC FRCP and our other sponsors, Creative Glass, Pearsons Glass and Warm Glass.

The awards are open to members and non-members of British Glass, and you can enter multiple categories, submit more than one entry in any category, and may enter the same initiative for more than one category.
Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts against the criteria for that category – so make sure you read them carefully. Entries should focus on work and initiatives taking place since last year’s awards closed – so between September 2021 and September 2022. The deadline for entries is noon on Thursday 22 September 2022.
