2023 Canada Games Launches Medal Design Call for Submissions

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island — The 2023 Canada Games Host Society is inviting submissions from PEI artists, artisans and creators to design the medals for the upcoming 2023 Canada Winter Games, taking place from February 18 to March 5, 2023.

The Host Society is looking for artists to submit designs that encompass the unique nature, theme, culture and spirit of Prince Edward Island and the 2023 Canada Winter Games. Submissions must include a brief description of the story behind the design and its significance.

“The medals are a very important component of the Canada Games, and the highest achievement for all participants involved,” said Kateri Coade, Volunteer VP of Protocol. “Athletes train many years for the opportunity to compete against the best in Canada and walk away with a medal – the ultimate symbol of achievement and gratification.”

The opportunity to design the medals for the 2023 Canada Winter Games will bring local and national exposure to the artist and their design. Over 1000 medals will be presented over the 16 day multi-disciplinary sporting event featuring 20 sports. The chosen designer will be awarded a $2,000 stipend in addition to receiving a commemorative set of medals, and will garner prominent exposure and profile, including participation in the official medal reveal announcement and subsequent promotion and storytelling opportunities leading up to and throughout Games-time. 

This unique opportunity is open to all artists and creators who are residents of Prince Edward Island. The winning design will be selected by a selection committee made up of internal and external stakeholders. Applications close on July 13, 2022, and the medals will be unveiled prior to the Games.
