Registration for Open Exhibitions will begin October 1.
CONTACT Open Exhibitions are an avenue for anyone presenting an exhibition of photography during the month of May 2016 in Toronto to make their exibition part of the CONTACT Festival. This portion of the Festival is non-juried, open to all participants.
Participants are responsible for arranging their own venue. Once you have a venue to exhibit your work, you may register your exhibition with CONTACT on our website. Traditional exhibition venues may be used, as well as unconventional exhibition spaces such as community centres, studios, cafes, shops, and restaurants. Venues must have public visiting hours to be considered an eligible exhibition space.

Exhibition listing with 75-word description and one image reproduction in the CONTACT Festival magazine;
One web page with up to three images on the Festival website;
Press access to your downloadable image on the website;
CONTACT venue signage;
Free copies of the CONTACT Festival Magazine;
Option to sell your magazines for the cover price, and keep the proceeds.
