Carlingwood Shopping Centre in Ottawa is getting into the spirit of the Canada 150 celebrations by taking part in the “Canada 150 Artist Installation” contest, along with other 20VIC managed properties across Canada.

Then get those creative juices flowing!

You could WIN $1,000 CASH and the opportunity to have YOUR interactive, artistic installation prominently displayed in a high traffic area at Carlingwood Shopping Centre, for the two months leading up to Canada Day celebrations on July 1st!

“The installation will serve as a focal point and Canada 150 landmark in Carlingwood as well as a photo backdrop for Carlingwood’s Canada 150 “selfie” contest. Shoppers will be invited to take a photo with the installation, post it to their personal social channels using the contest hash tag for a chance to win weekly prizes and be entered to win a grand prize that will consist of a trip for two to a designated city in Canada.”

Carlingwood Shopping Centre’s Canada 150 Call for Artists contest runs from January 20th until March 14th, so you still have plenty of time to get your interactive, artistic installation entered for your chance to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Artists have free rein when it comes to their Canada 150 creation, as long as your artwork encompasses a theme of Canada’s past, present and/or future.

“Keeping in mind the overall theme of Canada’s past, present and/or future, the artist will design and create a unique piece in the artist’s medium of choice. The installation should occupy a 10’ x 10’ space at minimum, to a maximum of 20’ x 20’ and a maximum height of 10’, and visibly communicate the theme.

All installations across Canada will be unveiled on May 1, 2017 and will remain on display in each respective shopping centre until July 2017. The successful candidate will be notified by March 17th and have two months to complete the project.”

In addition to the fabulous $1,000 cash prize, the winning artist will receive:

  • In-mall promotion of installation and display in high traffic area for two months at Carlingwood shopping centre
  • Promotion across Carlingwood’s social, digital, mobile channels + E-newsletter database
  • PR support and promotion for the Canada 150 Artist Installation, the artist and the “selfie” contest

    I have a question. Would a painting be appropriate for your contest and if so how big would it have to be? If it is huge does the winner have to cover the cost of the materials?
    I hope to hear back very soon as I am interested in entering your contest.

      Hi Claire! Sorry for the late reply! This is not my contest. It is being run by Carlingwood Shopping Centre. Please contact in regards to your question as I cannot answer it.
      Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are able to enter!
