Seeking Art for 2024
Bruce Trail Conservancy Calendar
Submit your artwork by 4:30 pm, March 17, 2023
Calling all artists: Help us show off the beauty of the Bruce Trail and the Niagara Escarpment and raise funds in support of our mission.
We’re seeking original paintings, drawings and textiles for the 2024 Bruce Trail Conservancy Calendar featuring nature, landscapes, heritage and people along the Bruce Trail.
All profits from calendar sales go toward the mission of the Bruce Trail Conservancy: Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever.
A panel of judges will choose 13 pieces for inclusion in the calendar. All artwork remains the property of the artist and will be returned as soon as possible. Each artist who enters will receive a complimentary copy of the 2024 calendar.
Subject matter: Artwork in the Bruce Trail Conservancy Calendar must depict or be related to the Bruce Trail or Niagara Escarpment – scenery, flora, fauna, historic sites, etc. Artwork is chosen for each month to reflect the appropriate season.
Size and Format: HORIZONTAL FORMAT no smaller than 7½” x 10½” (the finished size of the calendar). Originals can be larger but must be in a horizontal format.
Medium: Original paintings, drawings or textiles. For consistency and style reasons, we do not include photography in our calendar.
Submitting your artwork: Mail or deliver your artwork to the Bruce Trail Conservancy office, or email a high-resolution, high-quality photo of your piece (addresses below). If a digital copy is sent and your piece is chosen, arrangements will be made to ensure quality reproduction.
You may submit as many pieces for consideration as you like, but only one piece per artist will be chosen. We may receive more submissions for some seasons than others, making them more competitive. If you choose to send in multiple pieces, we suggest including those that showcase different seasons for a greater chance of being selected.
Information required with your submission:
• Your name, address & phone number
• Medium used
• Title of the piece of work
• Location along the Bruce Trail
If dating work on the front, please omit the month.
Deadline: Friday, March 17, 2023
All artwork is to be received at the Bruce Trail Conservancy office by 4:30 pm to be considered.
Physical/courier address: 55 Head St, Suite 101, Dundas, ON L9H 3H8
