Full details about the exhibition, including terms and conditions, can be found on our website,
  • The submission deadline is September 15, 2023.
  • To be eligible to submit an entry, artists must be members in good standing of the national FCA with Active or Signature status and they must also be affiliated with the Toronto chapter. 
  • All styles and subject matter are acceptable.  
  • There are no size limitations.
  • There will be cash awards: $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and $100 for third place.
  • All artworks accepted must be for sale, be ready to hang, and be kept available for the duration of the show.

  • As with all of our shows, "Perspectives" will be accompanied by an online exhibition hosted by FCA Toronto on its website.

As a reminder, your submission must be originally conceived: your own concept, your own reference, your own drawing, or your own painting created solely by yourself. Copyright infringement of any kind is unacceptable. It is unethical and against FCA policy for artists to submit work created from another person's drawing, painting, photograph, or other artwork that is not solely their own. The FCA does not allow direct copies of stock images, historic photos, or of any reference for which you do not hold total copyright. Purchased reference material that transfers copyright to the artist is unacceptable. Artworks created in an instructional setting, including but not limited to workshops and art classes, are not considered original artwork. Digital apps and programs may be used for cropping your reference photos, etc., but no digital, mechanical, photo, or other transferring to the substrate of any kind is acceptable. You must draw and/or paint the image on your substrate yourself.
