2023 Annual International Mail-In Art Exhibition

July 03, 2023 - July 23, 2023


This is an opportunity for artists from all over the world to exhibit for minimal cost and a chance to win prizes for your art.

Hosted by the Federation of Canadian Artists, The Annual International Mail-In Art Exhibition was invented with the premise of making the international display more cost-effective and accessible to all.

Now in its eighth year, past artists have exhibited with us from countries like England, Korea, China, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Netherlands, the US, Russia, Jamaica, and more!

Any artist from anywhere in the world can apply. There are some media and a specific size restriction, be sure to read the call booklet on the submission page in full!

Submissions must be no bigger than 8″ x 10″ or 10″ x 8″ and must be unframed. Substrates can be no deeper than 4mm deep.

We frame successfully juried pieces at our gallery.

This year’s theme is “Recovery” – artists can be as creative with this theme as they choose and each submission has a description box where artists can include text to support their entries.


First Place: $1,000 CA

Second Place: $500 CA

Third Place: $300 CA

3 x Honourable Mention Awards – $100 CA each

  • feature in a print catalogue
  • a chance for cash prize awards featured above
