The Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) is pleased to launch its second national juried competition of Canadian visual art, offering $30,000 worth of awards. This exciting endeavour is an initiative of the Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC), which represents the arts for Salt Spring Island, known as one of Canada’s premier arts communities. The call for artist submissions opens January 12, 2017 and closes May 31, 2017. The list of finalists will be announced by July 15th, 2017.

Approximately 50 finalists will be chosen by an independent jury from across Canada. All artists’ submissions will be anonymous to the jury.
