Art Deadlines

I came across this webpage today: Art Deadlines List
Seems like a lot of text to slog through, but if you're up to the task, there's probably several opportunities there for you. Every now and then I'm hankering for a deadline, aren't you?

And here's another one: Artshow. I just Googled art deadlines.
ALSO: I just found this Canadian portrait competition, with a $3000 prize (although the website looks a bit shabby): http://www.kingstonprize.ca/ Anyone heard of this before? The deadline is May 1st, and portraits may be either paintings or drawings, and must be made from life within the 24 months preceding the closing date. From the site:
Jury members are Eliza Griffiths, artist (Montreal); Bill Kirby, Executive Director of the Centre for Canadian Contemporary Art (Toronto); and Richard Rhodes, editor of Canadian Art magazine (Toronto).

From the entries received, the jury will select thirty portraits for the exhibition, which will be held in October 2007 at the Firehall Theatre in Gananoque, Ontario. The prizewinners will be announced at a Gala Preview, and the People’s Choice will be announced near the closing of the exhibition.
Upside: You only have to send a CD, not the actual artwork. Downside: $25 entry fee.
You can see last year's finalists here.
