details for artists

Registration is closed for 2020. You do not have to be a professional artist, nor do you have to join the Artists for the Great Bear Rainforest network. If you can create a piece in any medium and sell it, you can participate. Youth are welcome too in the Amateur and Youth category. Submissions will be juried to ensure they meet the subject matter and quality guidelines.

Anything in any medium.

Subject matter must relate to the Great Bear Rainforest or our campaigns, which include ending BC’s Wolf Cull, protecting Pacific Herring and BC Wild Salmon. You can browse our Instagram and Facebook channels for inspiration, as long as you credit the original photographer, and are creating original work. 

All works will be sold on our registered auction platform to ensure all sales are closed with full bidder payment at the end of the Auction. You can set your price for it – we suggest a minimum of $100-200 + an average shipping charge in North America that will be charged to the buyer as part of the price – and you can donate a percentage of the sale to Pacific Wild. 5% of total sales go to auction administration, and available splits are listed in the registration form.

Absolutely. But the goal is quality over quantity, and to have a successful event for you as the artist and for Pacific Wild. If you have interest from more than one buyer, or would like to do a series of smaller pieces, by all means, create more!

We plan a media campaign and will be contacting artist groups and networks and inviting their members to participate. And of course all of our Instagram and Facebook followers (almost 200,000) and our newsletter subscribers will know! We’re also counting on all of our artists to share it widely and encourage other artists to participate.

Registration is now closed for Wild Auction 2020.

Deadline for registration is October 31, 2020.
The earlier you upload and share your finished work, the more views it gets and the higher the bidding will be.

Auction Week is November 2-6, 2020. We’ll invite different artists to take over the @friendsofPacificWild Instagram account at set times during the week to raise visibility of the auction, and the bidding opens November 9 at 9am Pacific Time and closes at 5pm November 12, 2020.

Pacific Wild will collect all payments from our auction site, and deduct the 5% administrative fee before forwarding on the remainder of the purchase price.

Ship your item to your buyer and follow the split guidelines you committed to in your registration, and make a donation via our web site. A tax receipt will be automatically provided.

You have our endless thanks and team love, and we’ll continue to update you on the projects your donation is helping to fund.

Professional artists and makers may wish to join our Artists for the Great Bear Rainforest network, where we talk about art and its capacity to effect change, and brainstorm on collaborative projects or run group shows or just continue creating art and products to support Pacific Wild.

interested in participating?

Professional artists are also welcome to register for our #ArtistsfortheGBR network.
