ShowOff! Competition and Exhibition

Come on, be a ShowOff!

Alberta University of the Arts is offering Grade 10, 11 and 12 students from across Canada the opportunity to win mega prizes and showcase their artwork in the 2024 ShowOff! Art Competition and Exhibition.

How to enter

Simple. Submit up to three images of your original artwork, together with a description of what each piece means to you and a brief letter of recommendation from your favourite teacher to SlideRoom before January 31, 2024. If chosen as a finalist, your artwork will be included in the virtual ShowOff! exhibition hosted on our website. The jury will then award prizes to the top finalist.

What to submit

Anything! We encourage you to submit artwork that is unique and showcases your interests. So “show off” your creativity in whatever medium you like (we will accept everything!). Fan art or reproductions of existing artwork is discouraged from submitting.

Eligibility: Participants must be currently attending a recognized high school located in Canada and are in grade 10, 11 or 12.

Prizes: There are more than $11,000 in prizes to be won from an AUArts scholarship, tech prizes, and high quality art supplies.

Bonus: If you win, your school wins too. Each award winners’ high school will receive a bursary to buy art supplies!
