The intent of SSNAP is to encourage artists whose practice demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity, resulting in significant work with visual impact and depth of meaning.

Winners will be chosen by an independent jury from across Canada and artists’ submissions will be anonymous to the jury.

SSNAP Is Offering Awards Totaling $30,000:

SSNAP is one of the few national, juried competitions in the country. Our accomplished jurors, David Garneau (associate professor of visual arts at the University of Regina), Denis Longchamps (artistic director and chief curator at the Art Gallery of Burlington), and Naomi Potter (director/curator of Esker Foundation Calgary) share a deep knowledge of Canadian art while holding different areas of expertise and perspective on the artistic submissions to this national art show.

The call for submissions is now open to May 31, 2017, with details and entry forms at The Salt Spring National Art Prize.
