Canada’s most prestigious contemporary art prize
Established in 2002, the Sobey Art Award aims to promote new developments in contemporary Canadian art and provide opportunities for artists, bringing them national and international attention.
This year it will present $240,000 in prize money — including a top prize of $100,000 for the winner. Each of the four finalists will receive $25,000, and the other long-listed artists will receive $2,000 each. In addition, three nominees from the longlist will take part in international art residencies funded by the Sobey Art Foundation and the Donald R. Sobey Foundation.
