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!

The Alberta College of Art + Design is offering grade 10, 11 and 12 students the opportunity to showcase their artwork in the 2019 ACAD SHOW OFF! art contest.

We love seeing new ideas, so SHOW OFF! your creativity in whatever medium you like.

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 December 31, 2018. If chosen, your artwork will be included in the annual Show Off! exhibition at ACAD. Deadline to submit your artwork is December 31, 2018 - so submit your work today!

What could I win?
