Hello Magenta Friends,

As you might recall some 6 months ago, we announced that Stage 1 of our new website Flash Forward/Flash Back was live. And we’ve been hard at work since, creating a space for inspiration and discussion.

We’re happy to announce that Laurence Butet-Roch is taking on the role of editor. Aside from continuing to celebrate the works of past and present winners, through profiles and highlights, the site will also host discussions with practitioners around questions relating to the medium and its usages. We will invite guest editors to present their coup de cœur, and lists some of the incredible new projects, commissions, exhibitions and publications.

New content will be added each week, starting with a look at four Flash Forward winners whose work touched on this year’s four special categories. Please come and join us in this exciting new direction at Flash Forward/Flash Back.

Thank you to Presenting Sponsor TD Bank Group for its help in all the areas of Flash Forward. And a thank you to everyone: our artists to our jurors, editors and friends. Have a great month!
