Emerging Artist Award

The Emerging Artist Award is presented annually at the Mayor's Art Lunch.

The Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award is a $10,000 cash prize, with finalists receiving $2,000. The award celebrates the accomplishments and future potential of an emerging Toronto artist working in any discipline. Established in 2006, the award is generously sponsored by Susan Crocker and John Hunkin to support the development or completion of new work. The award given to finalist honourees was established in 2014 through the generous donation of the Bulmash-Siegel Fund. The recipient of the Award will also receive a complimentary week long stay at Valleyview Artist Retreat.

Deadline: The deadline for nominations is February 6, 2017. The nomination portal will open on December 15, 2016.
