The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) is calling on artists under the age of 30 across the country to participate in a national art competition with the goal to raise awareness of health services available to young Canadians. 

Winners will receive a $1,000 award and their submission will be printed on the front of bi-fold postcards that provide information for health services for youth (including mental health, addiction, and sexual health) specific to their province or territory. One winning submission will be selected from each province and territory (13 total winners).

Winners will be determined by a jury of international artists many who have explored HIV in their work at some point in their careers. The deadline is Sunday, April 30, 2017.

This competition is sponsored by One and All, a CANFAR program dedicated to providing free and accessible resources for Canadian youth to increase awareness and understanding of HIV.
