Founded in 2009, the Canadian Art Writing Prize is a juried prize designed to encourage new writers on contemporary art.
The winner of this national competition is commissioned to write a feature story for Canadian Art and receives a $3,000 award, while the two-runners up each receive recognition in the magazine and a $1,000 award.
Both the winner and the runners-up receive complimentary subscriptions to Canadian Art.
To be eligible for this prize, the applicant must be 18 years of age or older and have had no more than three pieces of writing published in national or international magazines.
To apply for the 2016 prize, please send a writing sample (minimum of 1,500 words) on an art-related subject, plus a 200-word biographical sketch, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. EDT on Friday, May 27, 2016.
