Lakehead Submission Guidelines
Thank you for considering a submission. Applications are accepted in the month of June (1st - 30th) each year. Email submissions to the curator directly are not accepted. Please use this submission form only. Submissions are welcomed from Lakehead faculty, staff, students, alumni, and affiliates. For submissions from non-Lakehead artist-researchers, please submit
There is no specific theme although pieces may be grouped accordingly across the three Lakehead gallery sites and the Community Partnership Spaces.
All works must be suitably framed. There will be up to five LAIR awards of $100 each, to be put toward framing, granted to selected students doing arts integrated research. There is no restriction on size however, please see gallery spaces on this site and contact the curator if you have questions on the suitability of your art. After the jurors select the works in July, the curator will provide a date for delivery for the works at the Thunder Bay Campus (usually in early September or January). Depending on jury selections, artwork may be exhibited for one or two semesters, or shorter at shorter exhibitions in Community Partnership Spaces. Delivery, pick-up, and all framing costs are the responsibility of the artist. Please see further details in the submission information below.
Once you submit the information, including your biography and abstract (artist statement about the work), and the submission is reviewed, you will be asked to email a high resolution image of the 1-3 works you wish to submit. Jpg images must be a minimum of 300 dpi and must include the frame of the piece in a forward-facing photo of the artwork (If submitting photos, you can frame the pieces after the jury process). Thank you again.
