In 2013 her work from GSA Degree show was shortlisted and selected for the Saatchi New Sensations exhibition in London during the Frieze Art Fair, she received The Royal Glasgow Institute's Exhibition Award and also a High Commendation at the Jill Todd Award.


“Catherine Cameron  deals in objects of uncertain origin. Her large format, grainy black and white photographs show a room with a couch all draped in fabric, the texture of the drapery and folds echoing a still life tradition. Sculptures of twisted paper appear as symbolic votives. The whole field is heavy with a rash of pockmarks and cloggy toner, giving it a Turin Shroud-type patina and the feeling of something having departed. Unquestionably staged, they leave us wondering about the presence of aura or sacredness in contemporary art.”
