There are five prizes for the 2016 competition; the first prize, three merit award prizes and the Gerard Sekoto Award for the most promising artist, with residencies in Paris, Johannesburg, Sylt and New York.

The top 10 finalists will all be placed on a two-day art professionalism course to assist them in managing their careers. Each finalist will also be paired with a mentor who will work with them for a year.
