External Calls for Submissions

Q: Can you share my opportunity for “exposure”, call for submission, or call for interns, with Visual Arts Students at Western University?

A: Is this a paid opportunity?

If it is a paid opportunity, please feel free to forward a call for submissions to and we will consider it for inclusion on our social media channels. You may also choose to send a hard copy poster and we may display the call for submissions in our building (subject to approval).

If it is an unpaid opportunity, the Department of Visual Arts policy is not to circulate uncompensated calls to our students, as it is professional practice to compensate artists for their work.

The Department of Visual Arts reserves the right to decline to share unsolicited call for submissions for any reason – any posters must be approved before posting.
