DEADLINE: Burtynsky Photo Grant

Event Date: 
May 15, 2019

Renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and CONTACT have established the Burtynsky Grant — a $5,000 annual grant to support a Canadian artist in the creation of a cohesive, rigorous body of work presented in book form. 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. Deadline is May 15, 2019.

This grant is intended to support photo-based artists and photographers who are at the advanced stages of developing a photobook. The jury seeks submissions from those that have created a book dummy and who have had little to no prior opportunity to self-publish or work with a publisher.
