The Salt Spring National Art Prize is a biennial competition and exhibition of Canadian visual art.
The intent of SSNAP is to encourage artists whose practice demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity—resulting in significant work with visual impact and depth of meaning.
Approximately 50 finalists will be selected by an independent jury of four from across Canada to participate in the Finalists’ Exhibition on Salt Spring Island. All artists’ submissions will be anonymous to the jury.
Finalists may be selected to win one of nine awards, five selected by jurors and three selected by public vote. The award winners will be announced at the Gala Awards Night on Saturday October 19, 2019.
This exciting endeavour is an initiative of the Salt Spring Arts Council, which represents the arts for Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, known as one of Canada’s premier arts communities. http://www.saltspringartprize.ca
