Negative Space Contest | Elevator Digital

Bob Carnie from Elevator Digital in Toronto sponsored the student competition, Negative Space. Over the Christmas Break the 2nd year students were commissioned to shoot images that incorporated negative space.

The dynamic Jessica Deeks took the grand prize with her image below and won free printing from Elevator Digital.

All the students and staff would like to thank Bob for sponsoring the contest and coming up to Ottawa with his wife and two dogs to give a talk on printing, photography, and the future of the imaging industry. A great time was had by all!!
