They also share their own expertise with the young artists with many of the staff providing financial and pro bono legal support tor the year that their work is on display.

Every year somebody wins the Clyde & Co Art Award with a prize of £5,000. Clyde’s staff also vote for their favourite works and also organise an auction on behalf of the students, who receive the full value of all the successful bids.
