All selected works will be displayed at the Community Gallery on and online from mid-December 2022 to April 2023.
The shortlisted artists will be responsible for providing high-resolution photography of their artwork to be displayed in an online virtual exhibition on the McMichael’s website and to deliver the physical work to the McMichael for the on-site exhibition.
The dates of the drop-off will be provided at the time of the shortlist announcement.
In the second round of jurying, up to three artists will be named the First, Second, and Third Prize winners in each category through a jury comprised of the Gallery’s curators, educators, and artists from the community.
An additional Kleinburg Village Prize will be awarded to the best artwork depicting the Village. Please note that no specific submission for this last award is required.
A People’s Choice Award will be awarded based on QR code polling of gallery visitors during the exhibition of the shortlisted works.
