The MNO is seeking original beadwork designs from Métis artists of any age for inclusion in an upcoming online project. These designs will be reimagined digitally and incorporated into an online interactive activity for all ages. Selected designs will be publicly displayed with artists receiving compensation for use and credit.

Not all submissions will be selected for use. Submissions will be accepted until June 30, 2023.

The following formats will be considered for display:

• Completed beadwork projects
• Hand-drawn beadwork patterns
• Computer-generated beadwork patterns
• Dot Art projects

We are looking for a wide spectrum of talent from any age range. Submitted images will be sorted into age groups to ensure an equitable and fair representation of Métis artists:

• Early Years: 0-6 years
• Elementary: 7-12 years
• Teen: 13-18 years
• Youth: 19-29 years
• Adult: 30-54 years
• Senior: 55 + years
