photos submitted for prestige

Toronto. PHSC president and my good friend Clint Hryhorijiw passed along this note from recent panellist Nicole Plaskett of the Canadian Heritage Photography Foundation (CHPF).

Nicole writes, “I was speaking to Clint last week and let him know that CHPF has launched an on-line photography contest which starts today.

“The photo contest is for students as well as non-students.  You can find details here: if you would like to share the link with your membership.”

You may remember that the prestigious CHPF is home to the negatives taken by the late George Hunter, the iconic Canadian photographer who we have enjoyed in past as a guest speaker. The babies photograph above is one of Mr Hunter’s photos. His amazing aerial images have even graced our paper currency! I saw one of his exhibitions at the Mississauga City Hall where he used scanned film negatives to create the large digital prints on display. Breath taking!

Those of us who actively use our collections (or modern digital gear) should consider this contest. A new monthly theme will be posted – with the beginning theme of Landscape. The award is the potential pleasure and recognition plus giving a helping hand to a very worthy Canadian foundation.
