Oh, Canada our home and native land - what a beautiful country we live in. Across our nation we have much to celebrate from gorgeous natural scenery to a rich heritage coast-to-coast, every province tells its story. No wonder we are all so proud to be Canadian!

This year, Canada is celebrating it's 150th and there is so much going on right here in our capital city! From parties, exhibits, special events and more, we are celebrating our country in all its glory throughout 2017! 

You love your country and you draw/paint, this is your chance to show what Canada really means to you through your artwork! 

Carlingwood Shopping Centre (along with other 20VIC managed properties across the country) is looking for Ottawa's talented artists 18+ to create beautiful murals reflecting our countries past, present, and future in celebration of the Canada 150 Artist Installation for Canada's 150th birthday!

The grand prize winner's creative artwork will win them a very nice prize including an honourarium of $1000 in their name, having their art displayed at Carlingwood Shopping Centre leading up to the 2017 Canada Day celebrations plus they'll even help show off the winning art with promotion and PR support!

Just think, your art (or maybe the art of someone you  know) could serve as a beautiful focal point and landmark in Carlingwood as well as a backdrop for their upcoming Canada 150 "selfie" contest and more!

What are you waiting for?

If you have an artistic idea that would be perfect for the Canada 150 Artist Installation at Carlingwood Shopping Centre the deadline for submission is March 14th, 2017! The official winners all across Canada will be unveiled on May 1st, 2017 and stay on display at local participating shopping malls up until Canada Day!

Please visit the Carlingwood Shopping Centre website for full prize details, instructions and official contest rules!

  1. Cool! This is a great opportunity for up-and-coming artists. I love all the things that our city is doing in this special year! Makes me proud to live in Ottawa.

  2. This is a very cool opportunity for young artists. I also like all of the amazing things I see happening around Ontario this year to celebrate.

  3. What an awesome opportunity for artists. Murals are the coolest art displays! I can't wait to see who wins. I love this about Ottawa. We have opportunities in the West Coast too, but I know your exhibits and are definitely a whole other level of celebration!

  4. So cool! I am often at Carlingwood, will definitely check it out! :) Thanks for telling us about it!
