The R & M McGivern Prize, a prestigious $25,000 national acquisitive award along with a $1,000 non-acquisitive People's Choice Prize, was established by the will of the late artist, writer and City of Maroondah resident Muriel McGivern. The main prize is awarded every three years for the painting judged the most worthy by an expert panel of judges. Shortlisted works are set to exhibit across two venues in the Ringwood arts precinct, ArtSpace at Realm and Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery from 23 November 2019 to 1 February 2020.

This year's theme is 'Anthropocene', which literally translates as 'human era'. An art trail has been created to encourage visitors to walk the 10 minutes between the exhibition spaces and explore a series of artistically curated signal boxes. For those who prefer, there are also guided walking tours or a courtesy bus tour between the spaces.
