Sponsorship Opportunities


A Competition Unlike Any Other

The Viali™Art Competition is no ordinary competition. It’s a new way of discovering, highlighting, and promoting emerging Canadian artists. With six cash awards and 20 honourable mentions, artists have the means to be recognized for their work and to promote their work with no sales commission whatsoever. This is a platform for the pure benefit of the artists. Awarded and mentioned works will be part of a national promotion program and exposed to Viali’s extensive art market network. They will also be showcased in an in situ and online exhibition for up to seven months. All entrants will be promoted and marketed on the website with 100% sales revenue going to the artist. All accepted entrants will also be published in the Vali™ Art Competition Exhibition Catalogue 2023.

Why Sponsor?

Art is meaningful. Present yourself to your market as a leading visionary and supporter of fine Canadian art.

  • Showing your support for emerging Canadian Artists.

  • Promoting excellence in the arts.

  • Educating and engaging with emerging artists.

  • Elevating the visibility of your brand among the art community.

  • Making new contacts and relationships with potential customers.

  • Accessing a community of people interested in art with the opportunity to engage in dialogue with artists, jurors, and other art industry players.

Truly ethical art competitions use submission fees to pay for the various prizes and perks that they award to their winners. That’s what happens at VAC – your donations and the entry fees are going to the artists, to fund prizes and promotion for the artists.


Your generous support will make it possible for this important art event to grow with larger awards and enable more artists over time. Together we can build a more vibrant future for emerging artists and Canadian art. Click here to contact me to find out how you can participate through sponsorship or email me directly at
