Judge Erin Cebula, ET Canada

Call it destiny and hard work or passion with a purpose, but either way, what started as a high school video assignment has turned into a dynamic and exciting career on the little big screen for Erin Cebula.

In 2000, Erin became Global BC’s first ever Entertainment reporter. This led to on-camera gigs with the Canucks’ Pay-Per-View broadcast, Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival and Tourism Vancouver. A couple of short years later, Erin took the helm at Urban Rush and garnered a Leo nod for “Best Host.” When Entertainment Tonight Canada launched in 2005, Erin was a natural fit and she continues to be their go-to reporter on the West Coast. Catch her there, or on HGTV’s Makeover Wish, where she rewards everyday heroes with the gift of a lifetime.


Judge Marc Koegel, VPW Director

Marc Koegel is a local fine art photographer, educator and writer. His black and white landscapes, nudes and architecture photographs have been widely exhibited in Vancouver and abroad.

Born in Germany, Marc has been seriously involved with photography ever since he was given his father’s camera and darkroom setup at the age of 12. He has worked and studied with many internationally acclaimed photographers, including Ralph Gibson, David Hume Kennerly and Jon Cone from Cone Editions Press. Among Marc’s keen interests are the creative and transitional techniques used to marry traditional darkroom with the latest digital processes.


Judges Adam Schelle and Kevin Holloway, Adam and Kev Photography

“Nobody’s perfect. Least of all us. Fifteen years experience have taught us that much. That, and that pictures of perfect looking people really aren’t that interesting. We work with corporate and commercial clients to show what makes them different. Because they’re not perfect. But they are different. And that’s what makes them interesting.

We can usually be found at our studio on Granville Street – planning, testing, shooting, and occasionally bickering over who makes the next pot of coffee.”


Judge John Biehler, 12x12

John is a passionate photographer and film school grad that likes to dabble in all kinds of photographic technology. He’s conflicted by the fact that if he wasn’t one of the organizers/judges of the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon, he’d definitely be a participant.
