The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), in cooperation with the Administration régionale Baie-James, the AVATAQ Cultural Institute and La Fabrique culturelle de Télé-Québec, is pleased to announce a call for application for professional artists and writers in the region of Nord-du-Québec. The Prix du CALQ – Artiste de l’année au Nord, accompanied by a cash award of $10,000, recognizes artists or writers from Nord-du-Québec who have distinguished themselves for the vibrancy of their career and the excellence of their recent work.
This award reflects the CALQ’s desire to offer tangible support to the careers of those who are making an outstanding contribution to the cultural vitality of their region through their work and talent. To promote artistic creation from the region and the award recipients, La Fabrique culturelle de Télé-Québec will create a video portrait during the year the prize is awarded (with certain exceptions).
Creators, writers and performers with more than three years of professional artistic practice are eligible. Application details and the application form can be found on the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec website.
The application deadline is May 14, 2021.
