The call is on for nominations for next year’s Middlebrook Prize for Young Canadian Curators.

The Art Gallery of Guelph has been giving the award out since 2012 to “an emerging Canadian curator who is under 30 with the aim to foster social innovation and curatorial excellence in Canada.”

The winner gets a $5,000 honorarium, as well as mentorship to develop an exhibition at the Art Gallery in Guelph, to be held from September to December 2024.

“The Middlebrook Prize has a powerful impact for not only the applicants, but the cultural sector more broadly,” AGG director Shauna McCabe said in a news release. “Supporting young professionals at a critical point in their careers, the winners are among the country’s best and brightest emerging curators with a clear sense of the transformative potential of the arts.”

The art gallery is accepting nominations until Jan. 26 at 5 p.m., with the winner to be selected by a three-person jury of arts leaders.

A winner will be announced in March. To learn the guidelines, and submit a nomination, head the Art Gallery of Guelph website.
