We have 5 years experience of assisting artists with their submissions to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. If you have been shortlisted for the next round of the RA competition, we can help you submit the original of your artwork to the RA on specified delivery days.

Note that it is very important that the artworks are framed in accordance with the RA standards and expectations. This is where our experience can help you: you can bring or post your artworks to us and know that they will be in reliable hands and will be submitted to the RA on your behalf on time and properly framed.

If you have shortlisted artworks and need our assistance, email us on .

Delivery days for shortlisted 2D artworks this year are 12-13 May 2016. Please contact us asap to ensure that there is sufficient time for postage and framing.
