The mission of the Sylvie and Simon Blais Foundation is to promote contemporary culture by developing programs that will bring new artistic practices to the attention of the general public.


It is with great pleasure that we at the Foundation announce the launch of the 10th edition of the Sylvie and Simon Blais Award for Emerging Visual Artists. This award aims to promote and publicize the work of emerging artists by providing a graduate student completing a Master of Fine Arts program at a Quebec university with a $2,000 scholarship, an opuscule and a solo exhibition in August at Galerie Simon Blais. The prize is awarded by way of a competition for which a new jury is formed every year.

Applications will be accepted from January 30 to April 7, 2018
