Student Prizes

Prizes are given to specific students who have demonstrated exceptional talent whilst studying on their course.

Prizes may be awarded to the student with the highest grade, ‘best in show’ or for the most innovative and creative artwork or concept.

We would be delighted to work with companies to create new awards that support the rising stars of the future.

Grange Hotels, Artist in Residence Prize

Leading independent hotel group, Grange Hotels developed an Artist in Residence Prize for students studying MA Photography at CSM. The winning recipient, Ksenia Burnasheva, received a year long residency at Grange Hotels, creating individual work based around the hotel group and culminating in an exhibition – a superb springboard for her future as an artist. 

The Artist in Residence Prize is part of a larger scale partnership with Grange Hotels including a student project to design the food court of the old CSM Southampton Row site (opposite Grange Hotels Holborn) as well as supporting the UAL Discussion Dinner Series. 

We are delighted that Tony Matharu of Grange Hotels had the vision and generosity to create this residency. It is a brilliant way to foster our connection with the history of Central Saint Martins.
