This competition was open to emerging and established artists anywhere in Canada.
Twenty-five finalists were selected by a jury of six renowned experts in the Canadian art field. An exhibition of the finalists' work will be on display from July 4 - August 4 at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre. During that month, visitors to the Pumphouse will have an opportunity to vote for the People's Choice Award.
The first and second place winners will be announced at the exhibition opening, ‘Walker Industries Art Competition 2019, hosted by the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre’, on July 4 at 7:00 p.m. This event is open to all members of the Pumphouse and the public.

All three prizes were presented at the Walker Industries Art Competition Award ceremony on August 4 at 3:00 p.m. during The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre's 25th Anniversary Celebration Party, presented by Niagara Casinos. This took place on the final day of the 14th annual Art at the Pumphouse Original Art Show and Sale at the riverfront of the Pumphouse.
