Our Bronze Sponsors

Our thanks to the Salt Spring Arts Council for helping to launch the Prize & for sponsorship of the venue for the exhibition of Finalist works.

The Salt Spring Arts Council is the gateway to the arts community on Salt Spring Island, recognized as one of Canadaʼs unique and leading artistic communities.

The Arts Council celebrates and promotes a diversity of arts as a vital aspect of a healthy and creative community on Salt Spring Island and the other Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia since the early 1970s.

The Salt Spring Arts Council supports the arts by creating opportunities for growth through education, events, partnership and advocacy in the Applied, Literary, Media, Performing and Visual Arts.
