We are seeking art submissions for the 2023 Ekphrastic Celebration, where poets will craft a haiku poem about a visual image they select from the gallery. This competition is open to NAC members only. To enrol, visit nanaimoartscouncil.ca/memberships.
Local judges will award prizes to the top poems, and to the selected artworks.
Of particular note: The artwork selection process will be competitive, and only twenty-five pieces will be chosen for exhibition by the NAC selection committee. Entry fees are non-refundable.
