The Gilchrist-Fisher Award is a biennial prize established in 1987 and open to all artists under the age of thirty whose work deals with the broad theme of Landscape.

Although originally instituted as a painting prize, work is now accepted in all media except video and installation.

There is a First Prize of £3000 and a Second Prize of £1000. In addition the work of the six short-listed finalists is exhibited at Rebecca Hossack Gallery in Central London,

Previous winners of what the Financial Times has called 'this remarkable and admirable' prize include Peter Doig, Alasdair Wallace and Angela Hughes.

_____________________________________________

The Gilchrist-Fisher Award was established in memory of Alasdair Gilchrist-Fisher, who died of cancer in December 1986 at the age of twenty-four. He was a remarkable young man whose wit, intelligence, enthusiasm and love of life won him many friends and presaged a great future. 

Soon after his illness was diagnosed he began a postgraduate art course, finding much joy in the discovery and exploration of landscape painting.

It was to celebrate Alasdair's life - and this particular connection - that his friends raised a fund to establish the Gilchrist-Fisher Award.
