Call for Submissons (Edmonton): Skirt Design Competition – SkirtsAfire Festival


SkirtsAfire Festival is a multi-disciplinary arts festival featuring the work of women. SkirtsAfire takes place on Alberta Avenue in conjunction with International Women’s Day, March 7-17, 2019. We produce and present passionate, provocative, moving, and entertaining performances, exhibits, and workshops.

Design our 2019 Official Festival Skirt! As we head into our seventh year, six designers will be chosen to compete in our annual Skirt Design Competition.

The top six Skirts will be presented in a runway style display at the festival media launch, where the winning Skirt will be crowned the Official Festival Skirt. The top three designs will also be awarded cash prizes. All six designs will be displayed in our Cabaret Theatre Skirt Gallery in the Alberta Avenue Community League for the duration of the festival, March 7-17, 2019.

We value diversity in the women we represent and therefore welcome women artists of all diverse backgrounds including trans women, self-identifying women, the LGBTQ2 community, all ethnicities, and all abilities.

Deadline to apply is November 23, 2018.
