The John Watson Prize is awarded annually to a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) by the John Watson Club in association with the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. The building which now houses the Gallery of Modern Art (One) was, until 1975, the John Watson School. The prize has been in existence since 1991 and previous winners have included artists Stephanie Mann, Paul Chiappe and Jonathan Owen. The winner receives a medal and the opportunity to display their work within the gallery.
