Call for submissions start January 1st, 2022 and run till January 17th, 2022 at midnight. Artisans will submit their information and photographs of their work online for jurying. It is key that high quality photos are taken to best represent your work to the jurors.
Our jurors for this competition are Jason Gress, a three dimensional artist and the current chair of the Vancouver Island University Art & Design Program; Coreen Zerr, a award winning fiber artist and instructor; and Cam Russell, founder of the Fine Furniture Program at Camosun College and owner of Coventry Woodworks.
