The 2011 Real Estate Foundation of BC Land Awards Gala

I was honoured to be asked to photograph the annual Land Awards again this year hosted by the Real Estate Foundation of BC. The gala evening was held on November 3, 2011 at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

The Land Awards recognize initiatives which demonstrate leadership, innovation, and collaboration related to the sustainable use and conservation of land in British Columbia. The awards celebrate and honour the non-profit organizations, private companies, and government bodies behind the initiatives...and they highlight the dynamic, forward-thinking people who make it all happen—leaders in creating sustainable communities and making BC a great place to live.

This year's key note speaker was Mr. William McDonough, a world-renowned architect and designer, and author known for his work in sustainability. He is also winner of three U.S. presidential awards: the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development (1996), the National Design Award (2004); and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (2003). Time magazine recognized him as a "Hero for the Planet" in 1999, stating that "his utopianism is grounded in a unified philosophy that—in demonstrable and practical ways—is changing the design of the world."

It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this event and support this very important work.
