  • Thanks for the heads up Jeff! Appreciated. :]

  • sounds superfun. i’m assuming this is open to entries from all over the world? there was nothing specified on the entry form.

    • We have a focus on local and Canadian talent, but since 2003 we have been showcasing a strong contingent of international artists. The last show had artists of varying disciplines from every corner of the planet. Apply now. Thanks Jeff!
