There will be no World Tour of the Banff Mountain Photography Exhibition this year.
“We received many brilliant individual images in this year’s competition,” says Joni Cooper, program director for the Banff Mountain Festival. “The competition’s goal is to showcase the best in mountain-themed photo essays – to recognize the best stories told through a series of still images. Our jury members were unable to choose an entry which met their expectations for an award-winning visual story. It was a very difficult decision and not one the jury, or the festival, took lightly.”
Meagan Stewart, the world tour program coordinator, told Jackie Pendergast at the Revelstoke Art Gallery (RAG) the competition “will be held next year “and we have every intention of touring the winners in 2014-15.”
The RAG has been one of the popular photography exhibition’s regular stops for several years.
