TORONTO, Feb. 26, 2013 /CNW/ – Scotiabank today announced the events for the 2013 Scotiabank Photography Award (SPA). This is the third year of this prestigious award, the largest annual peer reviewed award in Canadian contemporary photography.
“The two previous award recipients exemplified the talent, creativity and importance of Canadian contemporary photography with first Lynne Cohen and then Arnaud Maggs,” said Sabi Marwah, Vice-Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, Scotiabank. “Through the Bright Future philanthropic program, Scotiabank supports many forms of art. Our customers and communities see art as an opportunity to see the world in a different way and as a source of great inspiration. At the same time, our ability to highlight amazing Canadian talent both in this country and globally through this award is gratifying and it enables us to give something back to individual artists and Canadian art communities that support them. We look forward to seeing the innovative and engaging works that the jury selects for the 2013 shortlist and then our ultimate winner.” More.
