Deadline for Immigrant Artist’s submissions extended to February 5


The deadline for immigrant artists in York Region to submit their artwork for consideration for a variety of uses by The Regional Municipality of York, including upcoming Newcomer guides, has been extended to February 5.

York Region Arts Council has partnered with the Regional Municipality of York to share a call out for art (photography, paintings, drawings, poetry, creative writing, photos of sculpture), created by immigrant artists living in York Region.

Submissions will be considered for inclusion in the 2023-2026 York Region newcomer plan publication (such as front/back cover and interior images) as well as in ongoing Local Immigration Partnership communications materials ( website, staff presentations in community, photo exhibit, etc.).

The selected artist work will receive an honorarium (between $300-$600).

To enter your work for consideration, please fill out the submission form by February 5, 2023.

*Please note that there is no guarantee that the Regional Municipality of York will use submitted pieces in any way. The selected artists will be contacted by YRAC directly if chosen, and be required to sign an artist release form provided by the Regional Municipality of York.
