LIMITLESS 2017

2017_LIMITLESS_Subs_Banner

 Online Exhibition and Competition

Artworks Display online only

 

Established artists should be rewarded, emerging artists need supporting. LIMITLESS achieves both.

 

With no limits on style or subject matter, this entirely online call and exhibition is a chance to exhibit without delivery fees and win cash prizes! A portion of all submissions also assists in the creation of a $1,000 bursary for a visual arts student enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

 

This year's recipient educational institution is Emily Carr University of Art and Design. 

 

AWARDS:

First Place

$500.00

Second Place

$300.00

Third Place

$200.00

 

Entry does not constitute automatic inclusion into the exhibition. All artworks are juried for acceptance.

 

For members of the Federation of Canadian artists, collecting points towards their Signature Status, this is a non-qualifying exhibition and doesn't constitute a point towards Signature Status.

  

Below is a PDF Call Booklet for this call. Please read it in full before submitting. Each call for submission is different. Submissions made in error will not be refunded.
