Enter the Gwa’ni Project Art Contest!

Members are invited to submit art to the Gwa’ni Project Art Contest! We want to know more about what makes the project area special. ‘Namgis members are encouraged to submit a piece of art that they feel is connected or related to the Nimpkish Valley (the Gwa’ni Project area) before October 15 for their chance to win a $500 Visa gift card.  

Winners will be decided by the community by voting on their favourite piece of art.

Contest Rules:

  • Contest is open to ‘Namgis members only
  • All art submissions must be connected or related in some way to the Gwa’ni Project area. All art submitted must include a short description of the piece, and how it is related to the Gwa’ni Project area.
  • Any form of art is permitted including, but not limited to: visual art (paintings, drawings), photography, sculptures, poetry, storytelling, music, dance, singing, and more.
  • Artists may submit multiple pieces of art. However, each submission must be substantially different from other submissions to be considered a new entry (e.g., the same image from three different angles does not count as three separate submissions).
  • Submissions must not be of an offensive nature and must not contain offensive language, imagery, or illegal acts.
  • By submitting art to the contest, artists agree that they own all copyrights to the art piece and it has not been copied.
  • By submitting artwork of any form or medium, artists are providing consent for their submission to be used throughout the Gwa’ni Project in future communications and engagements.
