We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Canadian Art Editorial Residency.
The residency is a national prize awarded annually to a current undergraduate, graduate or other post-secondary student with an interest in developing expertise in the realm of professional art-magazine publishing.
Founded in 2004, the prize offers an 11-week summer residency at Canadian Art, along with a $7,000 award. The winner will hone writing and editing skills while learning production procedures for online and print media at Canadian Art.
This introduction to art-magazine publishing and writing is intended to foster new editorial and critical talent, and to provide hands-on experience working in the field.
Past residents have gone on to work for publications and institutions including e-flux, Afterall, the Banff Centre, Blouin Artinfo and Momus.
The 2016 residency was awarded to Merray Gerges, now a staff writer at Canadian Art.
To apply, prepare a 500-word review of a contemporary-art exhibition, a list of titles of recent academic and/or professional writing on art, a cover letter and a one-page CV (PDFs only).
Send these four items (review, list, cover letter and CV) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. EST on Friday, April 7, 2017.
