Show Off! art competition

Don’t be shy. Showing off isn’t always a bad thing – especially if you’re talking about the annual ACAD Show Off! art competition!

 Show Off! is an annual juried exhibition for high school students living in Alberta, Northwest Territories, or Nunavut, with over $30,000 in prizes to be won.

Entering the contest is a great way to challenge yourself, experience what it’s like to be an exhibiting artist, and win some spectacular prizes – including tuition at ACAD!

When is it?

Show Off! is June 10 - 24, 2017

Submission deadline  April 28, 2017.

How does it work?

Simple. You submit up to three images of your original artwork, together with a description of what each piece means to you and a brief letter of recommendation from your favourite teacher to Slideroom before April 28.

If chosen, your artwork will be included in the annual Show Off! exhibition at the Illingworth Kerr Gallery at ACAD.

What could I win?

There are over $30,000 in prizes to be won including the grand prize – the Show Off! Entrance Scholarship, which pays for your tuition for your first year at ACAD and provides your school art program with a matching grant!

Who can enter?

High school student artists living in Alberta, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut are eligible to enter Show Off!
