TORONTO – Following Sky Arts UK’s best-performing, non-scripted series of all time, Landscape Artist of the Year, the Canadian adaptation brings together 18 of the country’s best professional and amateur artists alongside 50 wildcard hopefuls to compete for a chance to be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada.
Elora’s Phil Irish will appear in the premiere.
Hosted by Sook-Yin Lee, the all new original series sees artists with just four hours to create a landscape masterpiece.
The winning artist will not only be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada, but will also walk away with a $10,000 cash prize and will have their artwork on display at the prestigious McMichael Canadian Art Collection – home to some of Canada’s most iconic landscape art. The world broadcast premiere of Landscape Artist of the Year Canada airs Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, starting Feb. 16, exclusively on Makeful during the channel’s eight-week free preview event running from Feb. 3 to April 5 across Canada.
“The UK version of Landscape Artist of the Year has been a fan favourite on Makeful, so we decided to take that winning format and launch an original Canadian version for our audiences to enjoy,” said Jamie Schouela, president, Canadian Media.
