University of Hertfordshire student, Kate Bieriezjanczuk, received the top prize for her entry 'At Dawn' in last year's competition.
RAS member Rachel Haynes said: "We had many disappointed young artists last year who were out of catchment for the competition, so we opened it up to a wider audience so no one misses out on the opportunity."
Competition entries close on July 31, with the winner being notified after judging on August 31.
