2018 submissions are now closed; thank you for your interest.

Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival are requesting submissions for the 2018 Burtynsky Grant—a $5,000 annual grant to support a Canadian artist in the creation of a photobook. Burtynsky generously donated his 2016 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts to create the grant and foster the careers of emerging Canadian artists.

This grant is intended to support photo-based artists who are in the advanced stages of developing a photobook. The jury is looking for submissions from those that have created a book dummy, are currently seeking funding to work with a publisher or to self-publish, and who have had little to no prior opportunity to publish a photobook. The winner will be announced at the end of May 2018, in addition to a list of honourable mentions.
