Call for Submission

2017 Annual International Mail-In Art Exhibition



Annual open call for submissions from international artists for small artworks that can be mailed to our gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada for display and sale.




First Place (1st)

Two Honourable Mention Awards

$100 each


At the Federation of Canadian Artists, we realize that rising shipping costs are becoming a dominant factor that hinder artist participation in exhibitions. Especially for artists wishing to exhibit internationally.


The Answer: Create a call where artists are encouraged to submit small two-dimensional artworks, that can be delivered in an envelope to our gallery at minimal cost to the artist.


The Result? An affordable call for submission, culminating in an international exhibition of art with cash prize awards for artists.


SIZE: Every artwork that is included in this exhibition will be framed upon arrival at our gallery. The inside dimensions of these frames are 8” x 10” (20.4 cm by 25.4 cm). Your artwork must fit within these dimensions. If you are opting to matt your artwork for display, the outside dimensions of the matt must be 8” by 10”, while the inside dimensions of the mat may vary depending on the needs of your artwork. Matt must be light in colour; white, cream, beige or grey.


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.
