It’s Canada’s largest and most innovative art prize program.
You’ve known it as The Grange Prize for contemporary photography.
Now it will be called the Aimia AGO Photography Prize.
The new name comes with a greater international focus and a new national scholarship program supporting the development of photographers across the country.
The Aimia AGO Photography Prize will grant more than $85,000 annually in cash prizes to photographers through the new scholarship and the prizes for the winner and three runners-up.
The expanded Prize will also give more than 20-thousand dollars each year to students whose artwork displays extraordinary potential in the field of photography.
The long-list announcement of prize nominees will be released in July 2013.
