NLMA Visual Art Award 2023-24: The Art of Medicine

NLMA Visual Art Award 2023-24: The Art of Medicine

The NLMA is pleased to share that submissions are open for the Association’s one-time addition to this year’s Arts and Letters Awards in honour of the NLMA’s upcoming centennial.

In partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, under the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts and Recreation (TCAR), the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) is offering a one-time artistic award to celebrate its centennial.

The goal of the Art of Medicine: Celebrating 100 Years of the NLMA award is to recognize the role and value of medicine and health care in the lives of patients in Newfoundland and Labrador, while honouring and celebrating the work of physicians today and over the last 100 years. The NLMA was founded in 1924 and is the voice of organized medicine in the province. A non-profit, professional organization, the NLMA represents the political, clinical, and economic interests of the physicians of Newfoundland and Labrador. From cottage hospitals to the establishment of a medical school, physicians have been instrumental in advancing the ever-evolving field of medicine for the people of the province. In recognition of what has been achieved and what lies ahead, the NLMA is proud to celebrate its centennial.

Two winners will be chosen to receive a cash prize of $2,000 each, along with the opportunity for their winning work to be included in the 2024 Arts and Letters Awards Exhibition at The Rooms.

The winners will be announced April 19, 2024 at the Arts and Letters Awards public opening and reception at The Rooms.

Open for submissions: September 1, 2023
