Amy Badgley, a Grade 12 student from East Three Secondary School, received third place in the Senior category for her piece “The forever changing culture and sky”, a photograph capturing a beautiful snowy landscape with a traditional dog sledder.
In her artist statement, Ms. Badgley said, “Canada is a place where many cultures have come together and I think the fact we can still go back and see how some of the traditional things were done is really cool. My community works hard to keep the culture alive and I am very proud of that.”
In its inaugural year, the Passages Canada Imagine Culture Photo Contest encouraged youth ages 5 to 29 across Canada to explore issues of culture, identity, and immigration through photography. Work was juried by an esteemed panel from Passages Canada and The Canadian Encyclopedia.
