Call for expressions of interest, World Junior Player of the Game program.

The 2023 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Junior Hockey Championship will be hosted in Halifax, NS and Moncton, NB from December 26, 2022, through January 5, 2023.

For each of the 31 World Jr gams, the player of the game for each team will be presented with a commemorative hockey stick.

There will be a rapid turnaround on this project, with artists selected by November 11 and artwork due no later than November 22.

Mawi’Art is working with IIHF on this project and invites Wabanaki artists to send us an expression of interest in the project by November 7. Two artists will be selected to design a motif which will be stenciled onto the blades of 150 hockey sticks and presented to the players during the tournament.

Expressions of interest should include a short statement by the artist about your interest in the project and any connnection you have had with the game of hockey, up to 5 photographs of your art work.
