If you need a reminder, we’re looking for portraits of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper that best embody his commitment, or lack thereof, to the arts. The top portrait wins a thousand bucks, and all finalists will be invited to have their portrait shown in an exhibit in Ottawa, with other Canadian cities to follow.
Since we launched the contest in November, nearly 100 Canadians from across the country have submitted their artwork, including a dozen students from a Toronto middle school.
Submissions will be judged by a high profile jury including Former Heritage Minister Sheila Copps, comedian Mary Walsh (“This Hour Has 22 Minutes”), filmmaker Yung Chang (“Up The Yangtze”), and artist George Littlechild.
For more info, check out the submission guidelines, and do stay tuned as we’ll be announcing the finalists in March!
