2021

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 CARFAC Alberta.

This prize is open to Edmonton area artists nominated by an individual or gallery/organization located in the Greater Edmonton area (Greater Edmonton, as defined by the Edmonton Community Foundation, includes 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 exhibition space during 2020 (January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020) or in an online exhibition during the calendar year 2020. Submissions are judged by an independent jury selected by CARFAC Alberta. Submission deadline is Friday March 12, 2021 at 4pm. The prize winners will be announced at a short ceremony in late May or early June 2021.

PRIZE: As gallery exhibitions were, and continue to be, disrupted by COVID-19, the independent jury will determine how to divide the $12,000 prize pool among three artists they have rated most favourably. As a result, for this year, there may not be a $10,000 winner.
