As a corporate partner of the Alberta College of Art + Design, Paramount Resources Ltd. is offering the opportunity for all ACAD students to participate in an open call for submissions. The selected student from the juried submissions will receive the “Paramount Resources Ltd. Award”, valued at $2000 in exchange for one piece of selected submitted work, which will be displayed in the Paramount Resources Ltd. office reception area downtown. Beyond the initial display period, the long-term intention is that Paramount Resources Ltd. will then auction the piece through one of their community investment partners, with all proceeds benefiting that charity. In addition to the award, this is a great opportunity for the selected student to showcase their work while also supporting a local charitable organization.
