Leader Photo Project

Amateur and professional photographers called upon to become part of new facility

The new integrated health facility project in Leader is engaging in a photography project to ensure the facility represents the feel and unique elements of the community.  Three feature walls have been incorporated into the architectural plan and will be comprised of photographs captured by amateur and professional photographers.

The Cypress Health Region has partnered with the project’s architect, aodbt architecture + interior design, to design three feature photography walls.  The designated spaces for the feature walls will read as a mosaic of imagery representing the community and surrounding areas.  The walls will be representative of the local landscape. The Leader Photo Project gives residents an exciting opportunity to have their works of photography become part of the overall design and feel of the interior space.

 Dallas Huard, Principal Architect and Nicole Tiessen, Principal Interior Designer for aodbt architecture + interior design remarked, “As the architects and interior designers for the new Leader integrated health facility we are excited to engage the community with this project. This initiative will enable the surrounding community to be a part of the design of several feature walls and give them an opportunity to leave their mark on this important building. We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to local residents and to collaborate with the Cypress Health Region on this exciting element. We look forward to weaving the story and the rich culture of the local area into the architecture of the building.”

Photo submissions of familiar sights and landmarks are being sought.  All photographs entered will be considered by an appointed committee and those selected will be on display for generations as part of the facility’s permanent architecture.

Photographs may be submitted by anyone interested in participating.  Several basic design parameters have been established to ensure fairness, quality, and consistency.  Photographs submitted may include landscapes, wildlife/animals, or architectural subjects only – no photographs of people will be considered.  Individuals may submit one or more photographs for consideration.  Participants do not need to live in Leader or immediate surrounding areas to submit a photograph. Final placements and scale of photographs will be at the discretion of the committee. Recognition will be provided to those whose images are selected, however final decisions on how the chosen photographs will be referenced and credited will be at the discretion of the committee.

Help tell the story of Leader and surrounding areas and leave an enduring legacy by submitting photographs for the Leader Photo Project. Photo submissions must be submitted electronically by June 15, 2017.
