ABOUT: The arts are a powerful and motivating way that youth are involved in their communities. Whether it’s in someone’s basement, or through a community program – young people are creating art all over the city. ArtReach and City of Toronto Arts & Culture want to support youth aspirations in the arts. Every year, ArtReach hosts the Pitch Contest- a chance for youth to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win $5000 to support their community youth arts project, start an arts-based business, or take their career to the next level!


PRIZES: ArtReach invites eight artists or groups to participate under two categories: Community Arts Projects & Productions, and Creative Business and Career Development. Each category has one $5000 grand prize winner, a $2000 runner- up prize, and two gift certificates that groups can use towards professional or artistic development.


ELIGIBILITY:

  • You must be an artist, a collective of artists or a youth-led arts organization

  • You must be between the ages of 18 and 29

  • You must be developing an artistic project or are serious about your arts initiative
