RBC Canadian Painting Competition Celebrates 15th Anniversary
Established in 1999, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, with the support of the Canadian Art Foundation, is a unique initiative to help nurture and support promising new artists in the early stages of their careers; a time when they need both recognition and financial support. In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, RBC will award $115,000 in total prize money. The National Winner and two Honourable Mentions will each receive a purchase prize of $25,000 and $15,000 respectively and these works will become part of the RBC corporate art collection. Additionally, the other 12 finalists will each be awarded $5,000 in recognition of the 15th anniversary.
