We’re on a mission to give BIPOC students a platform for their art and a $2,000 grant to continue making more.
This program is open to all Toronto/GTA BIPOC students enrolled in high school, post-secondary, or a community arts program. (Don’t worry, we always evaluate work against those at the same education level.)
can I submit &What
is the selection process?
You can submit any manifestation of your art – whether that’s a photo you took, a photo you took of something you made, or even a Word document containing a short story or poem. Just double-check specs and file types before submitting.
You’re welcome to apply multiple times (please do!) but we ask that you only submit one piece per submission period.
Voting will be conducted by a jury within the Juliet agency. We’ll consider each piece’s originality, aesthetic, and message when deciding who the recipient of the homepage space – and the $2,000 grant – will be. Shortly after the judging process, we’ll contact the chosen recipient via email.
can I submit &Where
will my work live?
Simply fill out the form provided under the submission section and attach your JPEG, MP4, or Word document containing your piece of work.
If selected, your work will appear on the Juliet homepage until the next recipient is announced. This will give everyone from creatives to producers to directors a chance to see your work. Once your time on our homepage is up, we’ll catalogue your piece right here on homepageforchange.com alongside the work of other past recipients.

does this program exist?
To give BIPOC artists a platform and the means to continue creating their art.
The advertising industry needs a dramatic increase in BIPOC representation. It’s been embarrassingly imbalanced for far too long. Especially in a city as diverse as Toronto, that’s unacceptable. We hope that initiatives like this can help to create change. Because change is long overdue.
