Toronto Raptors Will Pay Young BIPOC Artists To Make Raptors-Themed Art

The Raptors have partnered with OVO to create the "Welcome Toronto Creators Program," a competition for young Canadian artists to create a work of art with a specific theme in mind.

Canadian artists from the ages of 16 to 29 are encouraged to apply before the deadline of Monday, March 29. Women and BIPOC youth will be prioritized in the selection process.

Selected creators will be asked to make a piece of art that addresses the theme of "Eyes To The Future," the Raptors say, "inspired by the city of Toronto, and how Toronto Raptors basketball impacts youth culture off the court."

Winning artists will receive $7,500, have their artwork shared on the official Toronto Raptors social media channels, and have access to mentorship opportunities.
