The Petry Award

Starting in 2015, the Nancy Petry Foundation has partnered with the Joe Plaskett Foundation to administer the Petry Award, a $10,000 second prize. The prize money is to be used to live and travel abroad for two months, creating artwork and fostering inspiration.

The candidate chosen for the Petry Award will be an outstanding emerging Canadian artist in the field of painting. In addition, candidates must meet the requirements outlined in the application process.
