The Grange Prize, named after the AGO’s historic home, will be bestowed every year to one of five nominated photographers selected by a jury. Recipients will include both Canadian citizens and photographers from a global region outside of Canada.
The international candidates for the award will be invited to Canada for artist-in-residency programs at art centers or photography schools. A student or practicing photographer will also be selected to intern with each international candidate.
Information of the Grange Prize will be available on AGOâ€™s website by spring this year and the first Grange Prize recipient will be announced in spring 2008.
