It needs be on a 16” high x 20” wide canvas (1/2” thick). (You should be able to buy a canvas at any local art or craft store for under $10).

A panel of judges will review all submissions and select 30 art pieces to be displayed. If your art is selected, we will notify you by email and arrange for your art to be sent to the airport. (We will only contact you if your art is selected). We will send you a shipping package with a shipping label so you can send us your canvas masterpiece to display.

To thank you and congratulate you for being selected, you will receive an official YEG certificate, a $250 honorarium and a YEG sketchbook prize pack! (valued at $60).

If you change your mind and don’t want to have your art displayed for any reason, that is ok and we will select another entry. Thank you for your interest!

Your art will be displayed for up to two years. We can send you your artwork back at the end of the display time, but please let us know by emailing Thank you!
