Federation of Canadian Artists Guidelines:


Artwork that wins an award in any FCA exhibition may not be entered into any other Federation exhibition, except when the first exhibition was a Chapter exhibition and the following exhibition is a National Open Exhibition or an exhibition held at the Federation Gallery in Vancouver.


While using photos as reference for painting is a long-held accepted practice, making substantive use of stock imagery or photos taken by professional photographers is not permissible, even with permission. Photographs by professional photographers are considered artworks in and of themselves. Reference photos must be taken by the artist themselves or provided to them by an amateur photographer with their express consent. Stock images may only be referred to for anatomical study and must be incidental to the completed artwork to be permissible.


You will need a username and password to log in. If you need assistance resetting this information please contact or by calling 604-681-2744.


Please watch the tutorial video here if you need assistance with your digital upload. Do not leave submitting until the last minute. We recommend submitting as early as possible, artists submitting at the last minute will not be able to receive the assistance they need. All entry fees are non-refundable.


You cannot edit or add to your number of entries once you have started your submission.
