Are you an artiste under 30 who is passionate about Canada’s role in the world?
What does change look like to you? As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2017, it’s an important time to reflect on the impact we’ve had on the world – and imagine the impact we’d like to have in the future.
The ICN, with support from Global Affairs Canada, is offering an exciting opportunity for young artists across Canada to bring people together for positive change through their art. Enter your artwork reflecting the theme “Canada’s Role in the World” to our National Art Contest. The winning artwork will be showcased on posters across the country, as part of Canada’s International Development Week in February 2017.
Submit your artwork by e-mail to Krista Dinsmore at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight October 31, 2016 along with a completed release form.
This competition is open to all Canadian youth (aged thirty and under as of October 31, 2016). Applicants must be a resident, permanent resident or citizen of Canada to enter.
