Call for Submissions

The Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society publishes limited edition photographic portfolios of work by Canadian artists. Formed in 1986, the Society’s aim is to support the development of Canadian photographic art and raise its international profile. We are a non-profit society operated by a volunteer board of arts professionals.

Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace, Liz Magor and Stan Douglas are just some of the artists who have produced unique bodies of work through our funding. Our portfolios have been acquired by numerous private, corporate and public collections both in Canada and abroad, including: Le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, the National Gallery of Canada, and Le Bibliothèque Nationale de France.

This blog is a continuation of our efforts in promoting and supporting Canadian photographic art and we would like to use this platform to feature work by emerging artists.  If you would like to have your work featured here, please send the following:

          Up to 15 images (JPEG, 72dpi, no bigger than 1024 x 768)

          A brief bio and/or artist statement.

–      Image list specifying titles, year, dimensions, medium.

You can submit a single series or a variety of images.

Please send these to:

This is an ongoing feature and we welcome submissions at any time. Please feel free to ask any questions regarding this or any other matters relating to the C.P.P.S.

Installation shot from Ian Wallace’s solo show “At the Intersection of Painting and Photography” at the Vancouver Art Gallery earlier this year.

“Ian Wallace: At the Intersection of Painting and Photography is a major survey exhibition of the work of one of Canada’s most significant contemporary artists. Based in Vancouver, Wallace has played a critical role in the development of contemporary art since the late 1960s. His early experiments with monochromatic painting, his production of large-scale photographic tableaux and his juxtapositions of photography with painting stand as the basis for a distinct body of work for which Wallace has become internationally recognized.”
