The biennial Sir Leslie Joseph Young Artist Award has grown in status and prestige since its inception in 1996, and is a joint venture between the Friends of the Glynn Vivian and the Gallery itself. The Award has been made possible by a generous donation received from the late Sir Leslie Joseph.

The Award will enable the winner to hold his/her first professional exhibition at the Glynn Vivian.

Glynn Vivian Art Gallery reopened in October 2016, after a multimillion pound redevelopment which has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales, Swansea Council, the Welsh Government, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cadw. Funding was also secured through the Building Enhancement Programme grant scheme run by Swansea Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
