Prolific and iconic, designer Noma Bar has built his career on a simple premise: say more with less. The allure of Bar’s approach is his ability to communicate complex ideas using minimal visual elements. In addition to his many awards and accomplishments, he maintains an impressive portfolio of work produced for publications such as The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, Time Out London, GQ, and The Economist and advertisers such as Apple, Coca-Cola, Rolls Royce, and Mercedes.
Ben Wiseman’s bright, graphic, and minimal illustrations are designed to engage and draw attention. A graduate of Parson’s School of Design, Wiseman has produced covers for TIME and Newsweek magazines. With a style that is consistently clever, funny, and visually engaging, it’s no surprise that the young designer’s work has garnered such attention.
Drawing inspiration from the conceptual, socio-political illustrations accompanying the New York Times Op Eds, combined with elements of Pop Art, Parini has developed a style that is strong and sophisticated, with a unique and evocative sensitivity. Her notable list of clients includes The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue, The Guardian, Penguin Random House, and Apple.
Scotiabank Giller Prize
We’re very proud to celebrate the very best in Canadian fiction, through our sponsorship of the Scotiabank Giller Prize. In 2021, Omar El Akkad has been named the winner for his novel, What Strange Paradise, published by McClelland & Stewart, taking home $100,000 courtesy of Scotiabank.
Of the winning book, the jury wrote: Amid all the anger and confusion surrounding the global refugee crisis, Omar El Akkad’s What Strange Paradise paints a portrait of displacement and belonging that is at once unflinching and tender. In examining the confluence of war, migration and a sense of settlement, it raises questions of indifference and powerlessness and, ultimately, offers clues as to how we might reach out empathetically in a divided world.

In 2021, Deanna Bowen of Montreal was the winner of the 11th annual Scotiabank Photography Award.
"Deanna's deeply personal connection to her art – in particular her photography – immerses the viewer in a brilliantly potent documentation of genealogy, race, and migration in Canada," says Edward Burtynsky, co-founder of the Scotiabank Photography Award and Chair of the jury.
