Yesterday I was contacted by Sophie Hackett, the assistant curator of photography at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) in Canada. She is an organizer and a jury member for the $50 000 Grange Prize which is awarded by the AGO and Aeroplan. 

The Grange is an annual award for which the jury selects two Candian photographers, and two photographers from a partner country which changes every year. Once the jury has selected the four photographers, the winner is determined by online votes by the public around the world. By increasing the number of votes coming from our region, we will have a say in deciding who wins the award of a significant photography prize. 

The next step is to get a greater Middle East country named as a partner country so that two of our photographers have a chance at this award. GMEP has already started lobbying for this - now we need to show awareness and interest by voting.
Please spread the word.
