Sobey Art Award
In 2002, the Sobey Art Foundation created the largest art award for a Canadian artist under 40. The Sobey Art Award is now given annually to an artist who has exhibited in a public or commercial art gallery within 18 months of being nominated. A panel of five curators, one representing each of the nation's five regions, work to choose the shortlist of five artists from the national long list of 25 artists.
