Since 1999, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, with the support of the Canadian Art Foundation, has been a unique initiative that helps bridge the gap from emerging to established artists. The RBC Canadian Painting Competition is RBC’s cornerstone RBC Emerging Artists Project property which focuses on supporting artists at the early stage of their careers. More than just financial support, this program offers mentorship, exposure to audiences and more.
Fifteen finalists will receive national exposure and mentorship. To celebrate the 20th anniversary the national winner will be awarded a residency at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in addition to $25,000. Two honourable mentions will receive $15,000 each and the remaining 12 finalists will each be awarded $2,500.
