Award History

The St Kevin’s Art Show has awarded more than 170 monetary prizes since 1971. In the early years, multiple cash prizes were offered in categories such as the ‘best oil or acrylic, ‘best watercolour’ and ‘young artist award’. In 1983 a prize was introduced for best painting under $500, which was altered in 2010 to ‘best painting under $800’. 2006 saw the introduction of the ‘best painting $801-$1,400’ to reflect the inclusion of more ambitious artworks.

The inclusion of stylistically contemporary works in later years resulted in a ‘best modern painting’ category being added to the list of prizes in 2008.

In 2017, the St Kevin’s Art Show was dramatically reshaped and the prize monies consolidated. It now awards a major non-acquisitive prize of $10,000 to the work judged the most outstanding artwork in any medium. The Brother McCarthy Award, which was introduced in 1983 for the ‘best pastel, charcoal, pencil or ink,’ remains, however eligibility for this $3,500 non-acquisitive prize has been expanded to include other forms of work on paper such as printmaking and photography.
