      Capture Photography Festival and the Georgia Straight are inviting photographers of all backgrounds to submit their work as part of the Canada Line Public Art Project open call.

      Amateur and professional camera enthusiasts can submit one or more (up to a maximum of five) exhibition-ready images, which will be reviewed by a jury of three photography and fine arts professionals.

      A shortlist will be announced on or around January 15, 2018, and the shortlisted images will be posted on the Straight’s website for public voting.

      The winner’s images will be installed on the exterior of the King Edward Canada Line station during Capture Photography Festival in April 2018, and will remain on display for six months. The artist(s) will be paid a $500 fee (or split between multiple artists for a collaborative project).

      All entries are subject to a $25 fee paid at time of submission; the Canada Line contest page will open on November 14 and close on December 5 at 5 p.m.
