Dear Friends & Artists,
is once more appealing to Ukrainian Canadian visual artists to submit an original art piece depicting a Ukrainian Christmas theme for our annual Christmas card Campaign. This year, for the first time, our Foundation and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress are partnering in this appeal and two art pieces will be selected, one to be used in each campaign. A total of 24,000 cards with the successful art reproductions would be distributed across Canada during the Christmas season.
Although these Christmas Card Campaigns are primarily a fund raising appeal, they are truly a wonderful venue for exposing the talent of Ukrainian artists in Canada to a large and widespread audience. The two artists whose works are selected are paid an honorarium of $1,000 each for their art pieces which then become the property of our two organizations. For a retrospective of previous Christmas card art, please visit the Shevchenko Foundation Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ShevchenkoFoundation .
We hope that you will consider our request for submission this year. If interested, please email your work as a high resolution jpeg image to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, Oct 1, 2013. The image dimensions should allow it to be easily reproduced into a 5” x 7” card. Please also pass this information along to other Ukrainian artists in your community who may be interested. For more information, please call our office (toll free) 1-866-524-5314.
We thank you in advance for your interest and assistance and look forward to hearing from you.
