About Masterworks

Welcome to the Nova Scotia Masterworks Awards Foundation website for the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia’s Masterworks Arts Award. First presented in 2006, this $25,000 annual award looks to recognize, reward and encourage excellence in all creative media and to highlight works that have a strong connection to Nova Scotia in the context of national and international achievement.

We encourage artists of all genres, nominators, members of the press and most importantly, the general public, to explore this website to learn more about the award, past finalists and the current award season.
