    Host The Kingston Prize at your gallery

    This biennial exhibition features thirty contemporary portraits chosen from hundreds of entries received from every province and territory in Canada.  A jury of leading arts professionals including curators, professional artists, and art critics is charged with the responsibility of choosing the exhibition finalists and the prize winner. Each exhibition provides a unique perspective on Canadian art and culture.


    The Kingston Prize is comprised of many committees working together in the production of Canada’s national prize for portraiture and it’s exhibits. Are you interested in making the Kingston Prize bigger and better than ever?
