    Hi Dalibor,

    I'm glad you brought this up. I was going to post something about it, but it slipped my mind.

    The forms for this are up on their site, they're just a little hard to find. The direct link to the application form is here and the rules and regs are here

    Their theme is landscape, which they define as follows: 

    “Landscapes include both rural and urban scenes. The Canadian landscape is a tradition of this vast land and provides infinite interpretation for the artist from high realism to abstractions. The entries to this show will embrace that broad perspective of the land.”

    Each artist is only allowed to enter one painting. I hope a number of OPAS members enter. It would be nice to see an OPAS member win an award, like David Sharpe did at Paint Ontario.

    I missed the deadline for this for 2013. I wonder if we could have an area of the site with calls for entry that are relevant to plein air. Members could post if they are aware of any.
