How do I apply?
In January, you will receive a letter from your university with a web link directing you where to sign on and upload your application.
Submissions will be accepted from February 1 – March 3, 2014.
On the site, there will be a form and instructions on how to upload your portfolio.
Once you complete the application, you will receive an email confirmation, and your portfolio will be submitted to your faculty for a juried process.
How is the decision made?
Each institution will form a jury of 3 faculty members to select a finalist to represent their university. Their selection is to be submitted by March 31, 2014.
The faculty will notify all students who applied of their selection after March 31, 2014.
The scholarship jury will be comprised of the AGO’s lead curator of the Aimia | AGO Photography Prize, the AGO’s Executive Director of Education and Public Programming and the previous year’s winner of the Aimia | AGO Photography Prize.
The winning students, finalists and faculties will be notified of the jury’s selections in May 2014. A press release will be issued announcing the 3 winners, with a link to their works on the prize website.
