The Honourable Steve Crocker, Minister of Tourism, Culture, Arts and Recreation invites artists across the province to submit their creative works to the 2022 Arts and Letters Awards Program.

Since being launched in 1952, the Arts and Letters Awards Program continues to encourage the creation of new works of art by professional and emerging artists of all ages in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Each year, the program recognizes over 60 winners for original works in visual art, literary, French literary, music and media arts categories. All entrants receive a written adjudication, and winners receive a cash prize ($1,000 senior; $350 junior; $2,500 Percy

Janes First Novel Award) and have the opportunity to participate in an annual exhibition at The Rooms. 

The submission deadline for this year’s competition is November 18, 2022.

Applications and further information on the program can be found here.
