Doug Grant's photo 'Private Lives' was chosen by Dave Pollock of Prism Imaging as Prism's Choice for best Colour photograph. 'This work is filled with details that remind us of the world we live in. Other elements of this work point to private experiences, as the name of the piece suggests. The photograph is nicely arranged. All elements draw the eye to the central figure. The juxtaposition of graffiti against the repressive brick wall is intriguing.'

With more than 140 entries to Monday Magazine’s 15th annual photo contest, co-hosted with the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria, selecting the winners in six categories was no easy task.

Island photographers have once again proven themselves a talented lot!

Fortunately our judges, Jennifer Paquet, director of the Integrate Art Society and Andrew Paquet, owner of Andrew Paquet Photography were up to the task, lending a creative eye to this year’s entries and narrowing the submissions to stand-out images in the categories of: Colour – General; Black and White – General; Technology and Innovation (computer manipulation allowed); Reflection and Realization; The Bizarre and Surreal; and Consumption and Sustainability.

The Monday Magazine Photo Contest is Victoria’s longest-running photography competition. All entries will be posted in the CACGV space on the third floor of the Bay Centre until Nov 18. Can’t catch it before then? All prize winning photographs will be also be displayed at the Arts Centre at Cedar Hill Nov. 19 to Dec. 18.
