2017 Portfolio Reviews
The Gladstone Hotel
Sunday, May 7 and Monday, May 8, 2017
$200+HST for 4 reviews

Registration for the 2018 program will open in February 2018.

International curators, directors, publishers, and photo editors are brought together during CONTACT to review work by emerging artists, with a focus on documentary, photojournalism, narrative or photo-based art practices. This is an important event for those with projects at an advanced stage of development who are seeking opportunities for publishing and exhibiting nationally or internationally—as well as looking for guidance on conceptual approaches or career development advice.

Please note that due to limited space, all submissions will go through a selection process to ensure that a high caliber of work is presented in this program.

Supported in part by Ontario Arts Council, Vistek, Toronto Image Works and Steam Whistle Brewery.
