The Nonesuch Best Work Award will be 5000 dollars plus a 3-week residency at Main & Station (Nonesuch Art Centre) in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. 

50 finalists will be included in 2 group exhibitions in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia and in Montréal, Canada. A catalogue of entries will be published online and a print catalogue of the 50 finalists will also be available.

The centre offers workshops and residencies and includes exhibition space, a secondhand bookshop, and a vegetarian café.
