Call for Applications: The 2017 Canadian Art Editorial Residency

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 by 10 p.m. EST on Monday, April 17, 2017.
