The First Place Winner and People's Choice Winner will each receive a cash stipend to create a solo exhibit at a gallery in their region.

The Canadian ambassador of Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, artist Kim Dorland, believes that good artists are everywhere just waiting to be discovered. "Exposure is the holy grail for young artists.

Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation is dedicated to providing inner-city youth with significant exposure and access to the arts, and to offering exhibition opportunities for emerging and underrepresented artists. Russell Simmons and Danny Simmons, the founders of Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, have been at the forefront of the competition since its inception in 2010, "We've succeeded in discovering some truly remarkable talent in partnership with Bombay Sapphire® Gin, and I'm very proud of that." said Russell Simmons. "This year, we're thrilled to open up the competition to visual artists in Canada and continue to discover and shine a light on their creativity and imagination."
