The Burtynsky Grant
Supporting the Creation of Canadian Photobooks
Renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival are pleased to announce the establishment of the Burtynsky Grant—a $5,000 annual grant to support a Canadian artist in the creation of a photobook. Burtynsky has generously donated his 2016 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts of $25,000 toward the grant, to foster the careers of emerging Canadian artists. The winner will be announced at the end of May 2016.
This grant is intended to support photo-based artists and photographers who are at the advanced stages of developing a photobook. The jury is looking for submissions from those that have created a book dummy and are currently seeking funding to work with a publisher or to self-publish.
