The Ceremony is a lively event for the University's Studio Art community to gather together, students along with faculty & staff, to recognize undergraduate students who have excelled.

The Top Ten receive significant cash prizes, first prize valued at $1000, and Honourable Mentions each receive a generously donated year-long subscription to Border Crossings magazine. Faculty & staff hand out a series of department awards to participating students who have demonstrated excellence in their work throughout the year. This year's MFAs jury Jr. JAS, awarding several prizes to participating first and second year students.
