The Winter Exhibition award for $100 is sponsored by Senior Art Supplies.
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 Mavis Little Artist of the Year Award exhibition. The VAS Mavis Little AOTY is awarded to the artist gaining the most votes for the select exhibitions including the Mavis Little AOTY exhibition at the opening night award ceremony.
