The R & M McGivern Prize is held every three years, with a different theme each year. The prize for painting calls for artists across Australia to consider the impact of human habitation on the environment. A concept proposed by scientists to describe the current era, the Anthropocene directly translates to 'anthro' (human) and 'cene' (recent). It proposes that changes occurring within the environment may be a direct and permanent result of human behavior. The prize is acquisitive and the winning art work becomes part of the Maroondah City Council Art Collection.
