view details »

Call for Expressions of Interest from Artists and Illustrators
The Regina Humane Society Education Department is seeking an artist or illustrator to contribute illustrations to the development and publication of a learning guide intended for students Grade 1 through Grade 4, approximately ages six through 10 years.
Pet overpopulation and associated animal welfare issues are challenging problems that continue to affect people and animals in our community. This learning guide will be used to educate children about the rescue, care and rehoming of pets. It will feature the story of a cat and dog as they make their journey through the Regina Humane Society from arrival to adoption. It will also introduce students to the importance of spay/neuter, pet identification (including microchip and licensing programs) and responsible pet care through age appropriate illustrations and easy-to-read text.
An estimated 30 illustrations will be needed for the 30 page guide, including front and back cover. Once completed, this learning guide will be distributed to students through the Regina Humane Society Education Department and provided to classrooms, community groups and summer camps.
Submission Requirements
Artists and illustrators interested in this commission should submit an expression of interest that includes:
 A summary of relevant projects and experience, including experience with commissioned work
 Examples of previous relevant work
 Financial expectations
 Projected timeline for completing the necessary number of illustrations
Since the commission is for a children’s learning guide about pets, emphasis will be placed on seeking illustrations that are appropriate to the age of the audience and show an interest in animals, particularly companion animals. Interested individuals are encouraged to showcase experience and work aimed at young audiences and/or animal welfare.
About the Regina Humane Society
The Regina Humane Society is a non-profit registered charity which respectfully serves animals and the community. Since 1964, the Society has passionately encouraged responsible pet ownership and humane policies, legislation and progressive animal welfare programs. We provide clean, healthy and safe facilities to unwanted, lost, abused and neglected animals. We offer compassionate, professional and caring adoption, cremation, and animal protection services, and educational and public safety programs.
Regina Humane Society education programs teach a new generation of animal advocates about empathy, responsibility and caring. In 2016, more than 3,500 Kindergarten through Grade 8 students participated in programs promoting humane values, responsible pet care and dog bite prevention. From caring for the family pet to taking action to prevent suffering, the Society’s education programs empower children to realize that they can make a positive difference in their community and the world around them.
Submission Deadline: June 5, 2017
Successful Applicants Notified: June 16, 2017
Estimated Date of Publication: Fall 2017
Questions and Expressions of Interest should be directed to:
