About the CASV Artist Prize


The CASV Artist Prize was established in 2011 to encourage and support artists demonstrating remarkable ability within the first five years of their careers. Awarded to some of Vancouver’s most exciting young artists, the CASV artist prize provides significant financial recognition and is one of the few local art prizes of it’s kind.


The CASV Artist prize is developed and awarded with the aim of helping artists gain greater awareness and appreciation.


The prize is entirely funded by donations of CASV members and supporters. The winner will be selected by the membership of the Contemporary Art Society and revealed in October 2017. 


We like to give a huge thank-you to ECUAD for their support of the gala venue.
