Duggan Canadian Landscape Award

In 2015, former SCA Director of Honours and Awards, Mary Elizabeth Duggan, SCA, recognizing the importance and difficulty in establishing long-term awards provided the foundation for a new award. When her mother, Norma Duggan, an avid watercolour and plein air painter of Ontario landscape, died at 102, in the summer of 2015, her family kindly directed donations in Norma’s name to be made to the SCA in support of this new award. Mary Elizabeth then topped-up the value so that the Duggan Canadian Landscape Award could be presented annually for the next twenty years.

The Duggan Canadian Landscape Award certificate is accompanied by a cheque for $1000. ($500 from the Duggan’s is matched by $500 from the SCA).

This Award is to be presented annually at the SCA open-juried exhibition (not online).

The Duggan Canadian Landscape Award is intended to honour artistic excellence in the positive passionate presentation of the diverse Canadian landscape in mediums other than digital but unrestricted as to style. Sculpture is eligible.

Only Canadian artists, either citizens or having permanent residency of six (6) or more years, are eligible.

The exhibition jurors decide the winning artwork. They have the discretion to not present the award in a given year should they determine that no artwork is worthy of the award.

The winning piece is eligible for other awards that might be presented during the exhibition. No member of the Duggan family is eligible to receive this award.
