Framing Harper: A National Portrait Contest

Since Stephen Harper cancelled the National Portrait Gallery, we decided to create our own in his honour. We’re inviting artists to submit their portrait of Canada’s Prime Minister for inclusion in the Stephen Harper Portrait Gallery, and their chance to win (minor) fame and riches!

The Conservative Party has made many, many cuts to the arts, so our jury will be looking for portraits that best embody Stephen Harper’s “commitment” to the arts and culture in Canada.

The contest is open to Canadians and non-Canadians alike. Let's help our northern neighbors out. (Heck, we know what it's like to be underappreciated by our government, don't we?)
