  1. For the purpose of this fundraiser, we accept all genres of original fine art.
    Fine Art: This show accepts original artwork only. Works which have already been reproduced to create products for sale should not be submitted. Original works that have been reproduced will not be accepted.
    Fine Art Photography: The copyright of all photos must be held by the photographer. Entries must not be copies, derivatives or based in any way on other copyrighted or published paintings, photographs or other artistic work.
  2. Artwork must be in impeccable condition and priced accordingly. Works must be appropriately prepared for immediate hanging. Oil and acrylic paintings on gallery style canvas with the painting wrapping the sides do not require framing. The Art Sale Chair will disqualify works which are misrepresented by the photos used in the selection process, or works which are not original, inappropriately framed or in poor condition.
  3. Minimum price for works is $100.

Application Requirements

  1. Application Form: The Application form is available online at Printed applications are available as backup, however it is requested that the online version is attempted first (this reduces the data entry required and reduces the chance of errors).
  2. Digital Images: Five (5) digital images of 5 artworks indicative of the works you would sell at the online market. The images may be uploaded as part of the online application process or copied to a USB and mailed to the address listed below. Please see “How to Submit your work for Jurying” below for details.
  3. Application Fee: is non-refundable. The application fee may be paid:
    •  by cheque $35 (payable to “The McMichael Volunteer Committee”) and mailed to the McMichael Volunteer Committee at the address listed below, or
    •  By PayPal/Credit Card ($36.40). The link is provided online, or
    •  by e-transfer ($35.50) to the email
    Please DO NOT SEND CASH in the mail. Application fees must be received by the Application Deadline of May 31, 2021.

How to submit your work for jurying

The five (5) digital images you submit will be viewed by a jury using a computer. Your images must be large enough to be viewed clearly with good resolution. Photographs or printed images are not acceptable for our jurying process.

Each of the five (5) images must be:

  1. A 72 dpi jpg (this is the normal or standard resolution for digital cameras).
  2. Colour mode must be RGB or SRGB (not CMYK) – this should be the normal or default.
  3. Images should measure between 1024 and 2600 pixels on their longest side (i.e., taken with a digital camera between 2 megapixels and 5 megapixels on their best setting). Images smaller than this will not have sufficient clarity, and images much larger will unnecessarily clog up our storage space. Images should not exceed 1.5 megabytes in size. ONLY images 1.5 MB or less can be uploaded via the online application.
  4. If you don’t upload your images as part of the online application, they should be sent on a USB. USBs will not be returned to you. The USB must be clearly marked with your name and sent in a cover which will withstand mailing.
  5. Please name your files with your surname, first initial, and the numbers 1 to 5 (i.e., if your name is Tom Thomson, your filenames would be ThomsonT1.jpg, ThomsonT2.jpg, ThomsonT3.jpg, ThomsonT4.jpg and ThomsonT5.jpg.
  6. DO NOT compress the files using ZIP, Stuffit or any other compression software. We may not be able to open it.

Selection Process

  1. All submitted works are juried by a selection committee (jury) comprised of such qualified people such as curators, art collectors, artists, art instructors and others with a strong background in art.
  2. Decisions will be based on digital images submitted to a blind jury. The jury’s decision is final.
  3. Applicants will be notified by email mid-July 2021 or early August 2021.
  4. The McMichael Volunteer Committee reserves the right to use submitted photographed work for publicity (promotional postcards, ads, social media and web site).

The link for online placement fee payment will be provided once the artists have been chosen.

Delivery of Artwork to Purchasers

Artists will be responsible for arranging delivery or pick-up of items directly with the purchaser. Purchasers are responsible for paying shipping costs directly to the artists. You may want to include an average shipping cost in the price of the artwork. It is up to you.

The City of Toronto invites local area artists to submit proposals to create works of art on City traffic signal boxes throughout Toronto. There are over 2,200 traffic signal boxes located across Toronto at signalized intersections. These boxes are often covered with posters and are a prime target for graffiti vandalism.

The Outside the Box public art initiative helps to bring diverse and interesting public art to neighbourhoods, reduces the impact of graffiti vandalism and postering, contributes to the vitality and attractiveness of the streetscape, helps to beautify City infrastructure and streets, and supports local and emerging artists.

Artwork on traffic signal boxes functions as a form of communication to a passer-by with the goal to create a vibrant, inclusive and interesting urban environment. Successful proposals will be innovative in design, foster community pride, counteract graffiti vandalism and contribute to a sense of identity for residents and businesses.

The Outside the Box program is an initiative of the City of Toronto’s Transportation Services Division. Since it was launched in 2013, over 500 boxes have been animated by local artists.


Selected artists will receive a fee of $800 for each completed traffic signal box and licencing rights that will enable the City to reproduce the final design for promotional purposes.


  • Artist applicants must reside in the City of Toronto.
  • Artist applicants cannot be City of Toronto employees.
  • Use the template provided on the website to submit your design concept. Designs must cover all visible sides of the traffic signal box, unless where specified by the StART project team or specified on the list of box locations.
  • When designing the artwork, artists are encouraged to think of the context of the city as a whole.
  • Designs must not contain:
    ◦  any representations of traffic lights, signs or signals
    ◦  advertisement or promotion for any business, product or viewpoint
    ◦  vulgar, profane, offensive, or insensitive images or writing
    ◦  any breach of intellectual property, trademarks, brands, images of illegal activity or involve the attachment of any object(s) to the box
  • Consideration should be given to the fact that the finished artwork(s) will be in the public domain and therefore may be vandalized. Although the City will protect the artwork with a vandal resistant clear coat, it cannot guarantee that vandalized traffic signal boxes will be repaired and the artwork restored to its original state. Further, artists should understand that the finished works will be on functioning equipment that will need repair or replacing at some point in time. As such, The City cannot guarantee how long each traffic signal box will be in use. Artists must accept the risk that their artwork may be damaged, altered or removed at any time after completion.
  • All designs will be subject to review and approval by the City of Toronto.
  • Artist signature and website cannot occupy more than ¼ of the base unit.


Width: 850 mm
Height: 2,006 mm
Depth: 482 mm

Please note in very few cases the traffic signal box may be slightly shorter than the above height. The design template with dimensions can be found at


For 2021, Outside the Box aims to have 50 traffic signal boxes hand-painted by local artists. The majority of the boxes will be located in North York, Scarborough and Etobicoke.


Artists must specify in their application which of the 3 designated weeks they will be available to paint.

  • Week 1 (June 21 – 27, 2021)
  • Week 2 (June 28 – July 4, 2021)
  • Week 3 (July 5 – 11, 2021)

In some cases, depending on box location, some flexibility may be required and an artist may be requested to paint their box on another date if necessary.

Artists may submit no more than one design proposals (template) along with a statement for each design. No artist will be selected for more than 1 traffic signal box.


The online application can be found HERE
