Writing Prize


The Southern Alberta Art Gallery's third annual Writing Prize is intended to encourage new, up-and-coming art writers in Alberta. The winner of the SAAG Writing Prize will receive a week long residency at The Banff Centre and the chance to write a review for Canadian Art Online. The first runner up will receive a $200 cash prize sponsored by Dr. Carol Williams, Associate Professor and Chair of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Lethbridge.

Applicants are invited to submit up to three, 500-word exhibition reviews that will be judged independently by our panel of judges. Writers must be residents of Alberta, at least 18 years of age and must have published no more than three pieces of writing in a national magazine. Students and emerging writers are encouraged to participate. 

Submissions should be accompanied by a current CV and a short biography. Please email submissions to Christina Cutherbertson, Assistant Curator at
