SPRING 2016
THE BURTYNSKY GRANT

On March 7, Edward Burtynsky and the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography festival announced the creation of The Burtynsky Grant, a $5,000 grant awarded to a Canadian photographic artist to support the publication of his/her photography book. The grant was made possible by Ed's generous donation of the $25,000 prize he received as part of his Governor General's Award in Visual & Media Arts.

The deadline to apply for The Burtynsky Grant is May 16, 2016

ANTHROPOCENE UPDATE

On Saturday, April 30, 2016 the Anthropocene team was in Nairobi National Park among African officials, celebrities and passionate citizens to document the burning of the largest stockpile of elephant ivory and rhino horn in history. We are deeply grateful to the Kenya Wildlife Service, The Kenya Film Commission and the High Commission of Canada for their efforts to help make our shoot successful, and for granting us exclusive drone access to capture aerial footage of the epic event. 

105 tons of elephant ivory and rhino horn – worth well over 100 million dollars – were piled high and set ablaze as a powerful statement against the slaughter of these magnificent creatures and the trading, illegal or otherwise, of ivory and rhino horn as commodities. "Ivory belongs to elephants," stated Dr. Winnie Kiiru from Stop Ivory, a key partner in the event. The ivory burn and what it represents will form a key part of all aspects of The Anthropocene Project.  

Watch a sneak peek of the drone footage the team captured HERE.
