THE Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass is looking for churches or other organisations to take part in its annual Stevens Architectural Glass Competition.

Each year student glass-artists and -designers, whose vocation in glass has begun in the past eight years, are invited to design a stained-glass panel, and prepare a specimen panel for installation. This year’s brief is for the patient reception and waiting area of the Proton Beam Unit currently under construction at University College Hospital, London. Previous locations have included St Mary’s, Southampton; St Michael’s Hospice, Hereford; and Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

Organisations that are considering the installation of a stained-glass window, and take part in the competition, will receive a range of designs at no cost. The Company hopes that one of the designs would subsequently be commissioned, but there is no obligation to do so.

The entry deadline for this year’s Stevens Competition is Thursday 4 April. In addition, a prize of £500 is being sponsored by the Reflections of The Lord Mayor, for entrants aged between 16 and 24. For this prize, students are not required to prepare the stained-glass panel; entries are to be made by Tuesday 5 March.
