C New Critics
The C New Critics Award is designed to help develop and promote the work of emerging art critics. Now in its ninth consecutive year, this program gives C Magazine the opportunity to identify and support promising new writers, who often become regular contributors.
Writers are invited to submit a review of an exhibition, performance, or site-specific intervention, between 800 and 1,000 words, by Friday April 20th, 2018. The winner will receive $500 and editorial support in order to prepare their article for publication in C Magazine, and a two-year subscription to C Magazine. All other participants receive a one-year subscription.
Jurors include Kari Cwynar, co-director of Kunstverein Toronto, Editor of C Magazine, independent curator and writer for Artforum, Frieze and Metropolis M.
For the purposes of the award, an emerging writer is defined as anyone who has not published more than one essay, article, or review in a recognized print or online publication, exclusive of student-run journals and magazines. The competition is open to anyone, regardless of age, citizenship or nationality. One submission is allowed per person and must be sent as an email attachment, in MS Word to editor at cmagazine dot com. Mail or fax submissions will not be accepted.
