Scotiabank CONTACT PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL, May 2012
Contact is an annual festival of photography in Toronto, during the month of May, with over 1000 local, national and international artists exhibiting at more than 200 venues. The festival is devoted to celebrating, and fostering the art and profession of photography. It stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1.5 million. Contact is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere clutural event in Canada.
The festival's success is a result of an open call for exhibition, enabling emerging artists to show their work across the city, concurrent with exhibitions of works by leading professionals. CONTACT's curated programming-including primary and featured exhibitions, pubilic installations and special events-is the central focus of our activities. Through the ongoing development of the festival into a leading proponent of photography, we increase exposure and recognition for local, Canadian and international artists. CONTACT is committed to advancing knowledge, creativity and innovation in photography.
This year's early deadline to register your exhibition is November 25th. The final deadline is December 16th.
