Call to Emerging Digital Artists: Emerging Digital Artists Award (EDAA)

 
30 September, 2015
Apply to the EDAA

Equitable Bank is pleased to announce our Emerging Digital Artists Award (EDAA). The award caters to artists early in their careers, who are working within the screen and experimenting with the limits of digitally rendered imagery. Applicants are encouraged to play with moving image formats such as video, animation, and GIF art.

If you’re an emerging digital or video artist based in Canada, apply by filling out an online application form here. Then, upload your resume and the artwork file to complete the application. The call closes on September 30, 2015.
What happens next?
Five finalists will be selected by our esteemed panel of judges—Aleksandra Kaminska, Marissa Neave, and Lauren Pelc-McArthur—and invited to show their work at a screening event in Toronto, to be held at the Art Gallery of Ontario on October 30, 2015. At the end of the screening, the first EDAA winner will be announced and offered a $5000 monetary award. The award includes Equitable Bank’s acquisition of the winning artwork, which will be displayed on-screen in our company’s head office in Toronto.
