"At Scotiabank, we have witnessed, first hand, the powerful way that photography helps people connect with a moment in time. In 2010, we co-created the Scotiabank Photography Award, with Edward Burtynsky, to strengthen our commitment to the arts and to celebrate the creative vision and accomplishments of some of our country’s most gifted photographers," said Barbara Mason, Group Head and Chief Human Resources Officer at Scotiabank. "The finalists for this Award are artists who strive to invent, influence and redefine art in enduring ways." Ben Thompson, the Scotiabank branch manager of Small Business, announced the finalists and noted the artists' outstanding contribution to Canadian contemporary art and photography.
