To recognize, showcase and publicize the accomplishments of Canadian visual art, Salt Spring Island is establishing one of the few national, juried competitions in the country.

The intent of the Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) is to encourage artists whose practice demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity, resulting in significant work with a real visual impact and depth of meaning. This exciting endeavour is an initiative of the Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC), which represents the arts for Salt Spring Island. The Finalist exhibition will be held on the island from 25 September through 26 October 2015.
