Submissions: Call for Youth Artists

Call for Youth Artists – Sandwich Board Re-Design
Deadline: January 12, 2019

Hamilton Artists Inc. (the Inc.) is seeking proposals from young artists (aged 15 - 25) to redesign the face of our sidewalk sandwich board. The sandwich board is often the first piece of Inc. signage visitors encounter. It functions as a welcoming invitation to the gallery, encouraging pedestrians and passerby to enter our space. We are inviting artists to propose their artwork for the face of the sandwich board.

The sandwich board has two sides, each side measuring 30” x 47.5”. Your artwork should fill the entire surface of the board, on each side. Artists are asked to consider how their work will be installed on the plywood sandwich board (i.e. a printed vinyl, waterproof paint, etc.) and how Inc.’s logo, the words “artist-run centre” and “welcome” could be incorporated into their design.

All submissions must include this application form (fully completed), 3 photos/sketches/renderings of your proposed artwork, and up to five examples of your past work (jpgs only please). Please email your complete application to with the subject line: Sandwich Board Application. The selected artist will receive an artist fee. Notification can be expected by spring. If you have any questions about the application process please contact or 905.529.3355.
