In the last few years the Festival has experienced significant growth building strong relationships with premium brands like Scotiabank, BMW, Nikon, Pattison, Ernst and Young and Tory’s.  As a result programming expanded, engaging with cultural institutions such as the Art Gallery of Ontario, The Power Plant, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Design Exchange, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, the University of Toronto Arts Centre and the Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre.

CONTACT showcases and celebrates the photographic image, appealing to a diverse audience of professional photographers, art enthusiasts and amateur shooters. We create outreach opportunities for our sponsors through events and educational activities such as lectures, tours and workshops. As Canada’s premiere event celebrating the photographic image, the Festival can align your company with our premium brands, introduce and associate the brand with our growing audience, leverage our major media partners and associate your company with our high-profile programming and artists. Last year's audience was over 1.8 million visits and the Festival received over 500 million media impressions – we want you to be a part of this.
