Emerging Digital Artists Award | Call for Applications

EQ Bank and Trinity Square Video have partnered once again to launch the 2018 Emerging Digital Artists Award (EDAA). Entering its fourth year and with applications now open, the program continues its determination to highlight digital art as a field that thrives under experimentation and fosters potential for ongoing growth. As reads the newly published mandate for the program: We’re for web masters and re-mastering, not masterpieces.

Through the work of early-career digital artists, the EDAA celebrates the very innovations and inspirations shifting the digital media landscape in Canada. At its core, the program focuses on creating opportunities to support critical engagement with digital mediums that push against conventional artistic boundaries and into spaces unknown to the analogue world.

Eligibility & Submission Criteria

The EDAA considers an emerging artist as someone within the first five years of their professional career, beginning with their first solo or group exhibition in a museum, public or commercial gallery, or artist-run center. Applicants aren’t required to be current students or to have completed a degree in Fine Arts. The program encourages all emerging artists to apply. The award is open to residents of Canada 18 years of age or older.

The program’s judging table features panelists that helm from different corners of the Canadian art scene. Submissions are evaluated under four key categories: relevance or relationship to the digital, technique, aesthetics and a written statement.

A range of screen-based art forms are accepted, including motion graphics, digital images, and interactive (web-, app-, and game-based) works. Full details on accepted file types and requirements can be found at edaa.eqbank.ca, along with submission guidelines and instructions on how to apply.

Applications to the 2018 EDAA will be accepted until June 15, 2018.

Five finalists will be selected by July 2018, and in fall their works will be exhibited at Trinity Square Video along with the announcement of the winner in early October. The winner receives $5,000, a membership to Trinity Square Video, and a reserved space in the artist-run centre’s 2019 Themed Commission program. The four finalists each receive a $1,000 award.
