Summer Exhibition 2014: Judging
By Amy Macpherson
In the second of our behind-the-scenes videos about the RA Summer Exhibition 2014, we take a look at the judging process and speak to the exhibition's coordinator Hughie O'Donoghue RA.
Now in its 246th year, the Summer Exhibition remains the world’s largest open entry exhibition, showcasing works in all styles and media selected by a panel of Royal Academicians. Artists range from talented newcomers to some of the biggest names in the contemporary art world.
This year, for the first time in the exhibition's history, artists submitted digital photographs of their work online for the preliminary stage of judging. Shortlisted works were then delivered to the Royal Academy for the second round.
