What can’t you submit? Work that is not your own original artwork, work that was created more than three years ago, work that has previously been exhibited at the VAC, work generated using AI, and/or reproductions (giclées, photocopies, computer-generated copies, etc.) are not eligible.

What else should you know? Pieces must be show-ready / gallery-ready on delivery. Two-dimensional entries must not exceed 4′ in length or width, including frame, and must be wired and ready to hang (i.e. with screw eyes and steel wire). Sawtooth hangers, “clip” frames, and/or unstable frames cannot be accepted. Sculptural work must fit through a standard doorway. Some pedestals are available, or the artist may supply their own. Diptychs and triptychs (works created in two or three sections) will be considered as one entry.
