In the runup to the Capture Photography Festival, scheduled for April, you can take part in one of its key contests. The public can vote online for the photograph they think Capture should install on outside the King Edward Canada Line Station for six high-profile months.
The winning project will be part of the larger Capture Canada Line Public Art Project (in partnership with the Canada Line Art Program and InTransit BC), which will stretch across multiple stations from Downtown Vancouver to Richmond.
The finalists include Olivia Chaber, Wade Comer, Emily Geen, Gregory Geipel, Natalie Hunter, Tomas Jirku, Brandon Leung, Jonathan Luckhurst, Terra Poirier, Patty Tseng, Matthew Vogt, and Gerri York, with images ranging from the colour-treated and digitally altered to the abstract, surreal, and historically inspired. (See one from Brandon Leung’s “Houseboy Project”, a look back at traditional Chinese male servants.)
Added bonus: when you cast a ballot for your favourite, you’re entered to win a $100 gift certificate toward printing at London Drugs Photo Labs. The winning artist will be announced in February. Cast your votes here.
