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 young artists gain greater awareness and appreciation.
The CASV Artist Prize Longlist presents six Vancouver artists selected by a panel of independent, curatorial advisors. In May of 2017, the CASV will reveal the shortlist, and finally the winner will be selected by the membership of the Contemporary Art Society and revealed in October 2017.
The prize is entirely funded by donations of CASV members and supporters.
