Online Media Arts Presentation Standards


IMAA engaged in a national conversation to address online presentation models. As a result of this research, we will update our Fee Schedule to include online presentation and produce a series of additional resources on intellectual property, remuneration, accessibility and technical considerations.

Project Outcomes

The updated Fee Schedule and accompanying documents will be hosted on IMAASource, a searchable collection of resources and tools. The objectives are therefore as follows:

Main Objectives

Secondary Objectives

  • Implement additional web functionalities, such as
    • a fee calculator and flow charts.
  • Fix major bugs (such as the display of the landing page and mobile navigation).
  • Further improve web accessibility.
  • Propose updates to the website in areas including
    • navigation, design, and search functionalities.

IMAASource is a work in progress. We are looking for a partner who has an interest in continuing to improve this project in other contracts and who can accompany us in determining the priorities for the development of the resource.

Additional information

  • The content will be produced in French and English.
  • The number of pages is yet to be determined, but IMAA can be in charge of the content entry.
  • Good knowledge of non-profit organization and the independent media arts sector is an asset.


The budget for the design and web development is limited to $ 4000 with an additional $ 400 for accessibility user testing (all before taxes). If necessary, secondary objectives could be deferred to other projects with additional budgets.

Project’s Schedule

July to August 2021: Production of the resources

September: Translation of the ressources

September 28, 2021: Fee Schedule is voted at the Annual General Meeting (AGM)

September to November 2021: Web design, development and integration

We conduct interviews and/or hire the successful candidate at the end of August/beginning of September. The designer will be able to start working before the vote on the Fee Schedule at the AGM as we do not expect major change in the layout.

How to Apply

Please include in your proposal the following elements: 

  • a short statement of interest including if you will recommend (or already work with) an accessibility consultant,
  • a quote or preliminary budget,
  • a portfolio presenting past projects (website can act as a portfolio).

All proposals should be sent to Benjamin J. Allard at before August 19th. Applications should have “OPS Web – [YOUR NAME]” as a subject line.For any questions, please contact Benjamin J. Allard,, (514) 686-1005.
