This May, Toronto beckons photographers and lovers of the medium to once again make a pilgrimage to one of the largest photography festivals in the world.

Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is an annual event in May with well over 1500 Canadian and international artists and photographers exhibiting at more than 175 venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1997 and now a charitable organization, the Festival is devoted to celebrating, and fostering the art and profession of photography, through a diverse range of programmes.

As a leading proponent of photography, the Festival increases exposure and recognition for local, Canadian and international artists and is committed to advancing knowledge, creativity and innovation in photography. It stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1.8 million. CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural event in Canada.

The launch of the festival will take place at Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Art on May 2nd. Participating artists will be in attendance along with DJ Brendan Canning, Grolsch beer and wine provided by Stratus Vineyards.
