Since launching our St. Regis preservation contest we’ve received a lot of feedback from the Winnipeg arts community. We’ve heard from people who believe that a cash prize should been included in the award that will be given to the winning applicant, and that it’s disrespectful and wrong that we weren’t offering one.
Upon further reflection we completely agree, and we apologize.
This contest was launched in the spirit of partnership! We wanted to work with Winnipeg, harnessing local talent to preserve a landmark hotel, a building that currently features beautiful piece of public art. We know that there is a lot of amateur talent in our beautiful city and wanted to give those individuals the opportunity to have some fun capturing a building that has meant a lot to Winnipeg city for so many years. No disrespect was intended, but we made a mistake and we apologize.
To show our respect to the amazing artists who will choose to apply, a cash prize of $700 will be presented to our winner, along with three additional prizes of $100 for our runners up.
Once more we would like to apologize for the over sight and thank the city of Winnipeg for their honestly in this situation and overall support for the SkyCity project!
