Participate in CONTACT 2018
The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival invites participation from photographic artists for May 2018, either as a Featured Exhibition or an Open Exhibition.
The Featured Exhibitions program showcases high-calibre exhibitions and recognizes exceptional photo-based projects. Featured Exhibitions are subject to a juried submission process, and are eligible for The Gattuso Prize, a $5,000 award that acknowledges an outstanding exhibition in the Festival.
The Open Exhibitions program provides a valuable opportunity to have photographic work exhibited in conjunction with other emerging and established artists, and to inspire and engage with the city through photography. Open Exhibitions are non-juried and are therefore accessible to all interested participants and exhibition spaces.
All artists/organizers must have a confirmed exhibition space in order to participate in CONTACT.
A participation fee applies:
Early bird fee (available until November 6, 2017)
$275 + HST
Regular registration fee (after November 7, 2017)
$350 + HST
November 13, 2017 - Featured Exhibition submissions due
December 4, 2017 - Open Exhibitions registration closes
Submissions are not sought for CONTACT's curated programming, including Primary Exhibitions, Public Installations and Special Events.
