Scotiabank Message

Welcome to the 2019 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Scotiabank is delighted to once again serve as the title sponsor of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Over the past twenty years, CONTACT has grown into the largest and most prestigious photography event of its kind in the world. The 2019 Festival includes more than 200 exhibitions across the Greater Toronto Area and provides exposure for more than 1,500 talented artists.

This year, we are pleased that CONTACT will showcase the work of one of Canada’s most accomplished artists: Moyra Davey, our 2018 Scotiabank Photography Award Winner. Moyra’s work will be on display at the Ryerson Image Centre.

Additionally, for the duration of this year’s CONTACT Photography Festival, we will have the opportunity to view the works of the 2019 New Generation Photography Award Winners.

At Scotiabank, we believe that the arts enrich our communities and our society in innumerable ways. This is why we are committed to continuing to celebrate artistic achievements. Our support of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, the Scotiabank Photography Award and the New Generation Photography Award, which launched last year, are very good examples.

By working together with organizations like CONTACT, we can continue our mission to foster artistic communities in Canada. We hope that you enjoy viewing the works of some of the world’s most gifted photographers.
