The Aimia | AGO Photography Prize is pleased to announce the four extraordinary artists that have been shortlisted for the 2014 Prize. The Prize, co-presented by Aimia, a global leader in loyalty management, and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), will award each of the four artists a six-week artist residency in Canada and feature their work in an AGO exhibition opening September 3, 2014. The winner of the 50,000 CAD prize will be chosen by public vote, which begins today at the Prize’s website and Facebook page.
The 2014 finalists are:
David Hartt (Canada)

Together representing the cutting edge of international photography, the four artists engage with broad historical and cultural forces such as war, colonialism, urban planning and advertising.
