The Spring Exhibition award is sponsored by former VAS Honorary Treasurer Mr Gordon Moffatt AM.
The Victorian Artists Society holds three Select Exhibitions throughout the year; the Autumn, Winter and Spring Exhibitions. All exhibiting artists in these three exhibitions and artist members are invited to cast votes for their four favourite artists. These votes are used to decide the list of candidates for the Artist of the Year Award exhibition. The VAS AOTY is awarded to the artist gaining the most votes for the select exhibitions including the AOTY exhibition at the opening night award ceremony.
The Spring Exhibition features the Gordon Moffatt AM Spring Prizes for:
- 1st prize, $500
- 2nd prize, $250
- 3rd prize $100
- Sculpture prize, $150
