NSCAD University is proud to present the annual NSCAD Student Art Award. This celebration of achievement is a recognition of our students’ outstanding work with one $5,000 purchase grand prize, and nine $1,000 best-in-category prizes. The grand prize-winning artwork will also be added to the President’s Art Bank, part of NSCAD University’s permanent collection.
The Student Art Award provides young artists across ten disciplines at the university with vital visibility as they embark on their careers. The ten nominated works are exhibited at a special one-night gala event, where an external jury will vote on the winning work.
