Jack Gilbert/ Ryerson University School of Image Arts Award

The Jack Gilbert Image Arts Award is a partnership with Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts. It goes to an exceptional fourth-year graduating student who is under 30 years of age and from the Greater Toronto Area.

Recipients receive a $500 award and a year-long complimentary membership to The Arts and Letters Club. The goal is that award winners will also attend a future meeting of the Club’s Hot Shots Group and their work will be displayed in the Club’s photography show.

The award is provided through a generous donation from Club Member Jack Gilbert.
