Edward Burtynsky will be the recipient of the 2011 MOCCA Award. The biennial MOCCA Award in Contemporary Art was established by the Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art in 2007 to honour a Canadian active in the field for innovation, accomplishment, contribution over time, or for a specific project, that has national or international significance.

This honour has been bestowed on the Toronto-based, internationally-recognized artist Edward Burtynsky in acknowledgement of his extraordinary body of photography documenting the human impact upon the landscape and the environment of our planet.
