Open Calls – Deadline June 14th

Each year, two Open Calls are held for artists to propose pieces that will enhance the Nuit Blanche logoaudience experience of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured around Winnipeg in our three zones.

Emerging Voices 2016 invites post-secondary students working in all artistic mediums to submit projects. Each awarded project receives a $500 honorarium and has the chance of winning the $1,000 first place cash prize. This prize is generously sponsored by Winnipeg artist Jeff Funnell, but as Jeff so eloquently says, “There are no losers in art.”
