Established in 1999, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, with the support of the Canadian Art Foundation, is a unique initiative that helps to nurture and support promising new artists in the early stages of their careers, a time when they need both recognition and financial support.

One national winner and two honourable mentions will be awarded purchase prizes of $25,000 and $15,000 respectively. With a total of $55,000 in prizes, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition offers one of the highest awards of any painting competition in Canada.

Semifinalists in this year’s RBC Canadian Painting Competition are: Rebecca Brewer (Vancouver), Thomas Chisholm (Victoria), Jessica Groome (Guelph), Adam Gunn (Halifax), Daniel Hutchinson (Toronto), Krisjanis Katkins-Gorsline (Winnipeg), Bitsy Knox (Vancouver), Tristram Lansdowne (Toronto), Deirdre McAdams
(Vancouver), Kim Neudorf (London), Jared Peters (Saint John), Ianick Raymond (Montreal), Amy Schissel (Gatineau), Beth Stuart (Toronto), and Julie Trudel (Montreal).

On  28 October, RBC has named Vancouver artist Rebecca Brewer the national winner of the 13th annual RBC Canadian Painting Competition. Rebecca was awarded a $25,000 purchase prize for her original work, entitled Beuys painting.
