Opportunity for local artists with Lyth Arts Centre

25th October 2020


LAC is looking to commission 10-12 artists in Caithness and North Sutherland to each design a 2-page activity for a Christmas-themed, physical and digital, activity book: Caithness, Under the Christmas Tree.

Caithness, Under the Christmas Tree will follow a similar style and format to LAC's successful lockdown project: Caithness, Through My Window, but with a little bit of Christmas sparkle. We distributed over 800 physical copies of Caithness, Through My Window free of charge, and hope to reach at least the same again.


We are looking for original and unique ideas so we can put together a variety of activities

The activity page must be 2 x A4 pages in length

The finished page must be submitted in .jpg or .pdf format, so a reasonable level of digital design skill will be required. We can provide templates, and will have a designer pulling the whole booklet together

Keep your proposals as inclusive as possible, so avoiding the need for any additional specialist equipment.


The fee for each agreed submission is £294.00. We have calculated this at 8 hours x £36.75 (Scottish Artists union hourly rate), which should give you an indication of the level of work required. We will likely commission 10 - 12 artists to complete their designs.


Open call opens: Friday 16 October

Deadline for completing and submitting this form: Monday 2 November (midday)

We will let you know if you have been successful by Tuesday 3 November.

Print deadline for selected artists: Friday 13 November (5pm)
