To Submit a Proposal for Modifying Existing VMC Content
The VMC will consider reinvesting in existing virtual exhibits in which the VMC has previously invested every five years, following their contract renewal. This investment is intended for virtual exhibits in which there is an interest in making minor updates to the content or the technical functionality of the virtual exhibit (a ceiling of $25,000, plus GST/HST, applies).
For major updates to existing virtual exhibits in which the VMC has previously invested, a new proposal must be submitted for review by the VMC Editorial Board during a Call for Proposals period.
