We have changed the submission deadline for The Eldon + Anne Foote Edmonton Visual Arts Prize. It is not too soon to think about nominating a Greater Edmonton visual artist or artists that deserve this $10,000 prize. The deadline for submissions is February 8, 2019.

The Eldon + Anne Foote Edmonton Visual Arts Prize was established with the generous support of the Eldon + Anne Foote Fund at Edmonton Community Foundation and in partnership with the Edmonton Arts Council and Visual Arts Alberta Association. This Visual Arts Prize celebrates the brilliance of Visual Artists in Edmonton.

This $10,000 prize is open to Edmonton area artists nominated by an individual, a gallery, art group or art organization also located in the Edmonton area (defined as the City of Edmonton and its four surrounding counties). Entries may be in any visual arts media and must have been shown in a greater Edmonton area gallery space during 2018 (January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018). Submissions will be judged by an independent jury selected by Visual Arts Alberta Association. Deadline for submissions is 4pm on Friday, February 8, 2019. A shortlist will be announced on or before Friday, April 26, 2019. The prize winner will be announced at a short ceremony in May or June 2019.
