Montreal's Dil Hildebrand was named the winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, an annual contest for emerging artists. For his work entitled Curtains, an oil-on-canvas depiction of trees and an unnatural grid-like shadow, Hildebrand earns $25,000.

Honourable mentions, worth $15,000 each, were given to Matthew Brown of Vancouver and Adam Brickell of Niagara Falls, Ont. The total disbursement of $55,000 represents the largest cash prize for painting in Canada.

Hildebrand, whose art is informed by his work in theatrical and film scenery, was one of 15 short-listed artists drawn from a nationwide pool of 600 entrants. A touring exhibition of all the nominated works moves from Toronto's Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art after Sunday to Kitchener, Ont., Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. Staff
