C New Critics

The C New Critics Award, now in its 11th year, is designed to help develop and promote the work of emerging art critics. Writers are invited to submit an 800-1,000 word review of an exhibition, performance, moving image work, or site-specific intervention by Tuesday April 21, 2020. The winner will receive $750, a two-year subscription to C Magazine, and editorial support to publish their submitted review in the Autumn 2019 issue. All participants will receive a one-year subscription.

For the purposes of the award, an emerging writer is defined as anyone who has not published more than one piece of writing in a recognized print or online publication, excluding student-run journals and magazines. The competition is open to anyone, regardless of age, citizenship or nationality.

Jurors will include Jaclyn Bruneau (Editor, C Magazine), Monika Kin Gagnon and Amy Kazymerchyk
