Registration for Open Exhibitions is now open. Deadline for registration is December 4, 2015 at 5pm.
The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, a month-long celebration of the art and profession of photography in Toronto, is inviting registration for the 2016 Open Exhibitions program. This part of the Festival provides you with a valuable opportunity to hold your own exhibition, and enables a platform for dialogue and engagement with the community throughout the month. It is a non-juried program—open to all, encouraging a variety of photographic practices and alternative venue options.
Participants are responsible for arranging their own venue. Once you have a venue to exhibit your work, you may register your exhibition with CONTACT. Traditional exhibition venues may be used, as well as alternative exhibition spaces such as community centres, studios, cafes, shops, and restaurants. Venues must have public visiting hours to be considered an eligible exhibition space.
Benefits of registration include:
- 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
- Copies of the CONTACT Festival Magazine
