BMW Exhibition Prize for "an outstanding Open or Featured exhibition" in the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival 2013, awarded for the exhibition Marlene Creates: selected works from 30 years, 1982–2012 at Paul Petro Contemporary Art, Toronto, announced May 30, 2013.

jury citation: Marlene Creates powerfully explores the themes of place, landscape, and temporality in images that foreground questions of perception. Poetic and meditative, her work explores the traces of human presence in the environment and invites viewers to consider both our lasting effects on the land, as well as the ephemerality of our presence. We were really struck by the way in which her work explored temporality using the documentary function of photography in ways that weren’t simply about catching a moment but which unfolded in time.
