Call for Poster Artists: “I Am Canadian Content” campaign

Location: Remote
Project Fee: $500
Deadline: January 28, 2021
Organization: FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting

Are you a Canadian illustrator with a passion for poster art?

FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting is a non-profit organization that defends Canadian culture and democracy. A strong CBC, fearless journalism, and our shared story make us who we are. Millions of citizens care deeply about the future of Canadian media, journalism, and programming. We work tirelessly to advocate on their behalf and we give Canadians opportunities to participate in these campaigns.

FRIENDS is currently seeking Canadian illustrators and visual artists to create original poster art on the theme of “I Am Canadian Content” to be used in an upcoming campaign.

A series of 11×17” posters will be produced to be distributed to our supporters and made available for sale for a limited time. They are meant to be bold expressions of our cultural sovereignty, and beautiful artistic keepsakes.

Artists will receive $500 CDN for the non-exclusive rights to use the work, plus 10 copies of their poster.

To be considered as a poster artist, please visit the submission form on our website.

This campaign is running in both French and English. Francophone artists should submit here.

Deadline is January 28, 2021.

For more information, contact Liisa Ladouceur at liisa@friends.ca.

FRIENDS is particularly interested in representing a diverse body of work for this campaign, and we strongly encourage and welcome applications from across genders, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, religions and beliefs.
