A Brief History

As an Independant Photographer:

As an independent participant, you get to locate your own show venue, such as a cafe or B&B, etc.
It is your responsibility to arrange terms of exhibiting directly between you and the venue. Or, if you have your own studio, you may apply with the photo festival committee to host your own photography exhibit by contacting festival representative Judy McPhee: jhmcphee@shaw.ca

Registration Fee: $25.

Includes placement on the festival map, additional publicity, and a sign for your window to correlate your venue with your number on the map. Your venue or studio “open” hours will be posted on the festival website.

With a Local Photo Organization:

The following two photo organizations will be hosting group exhibitions during the festival. Note each has it’s own fees for participation, as well as committee duties that come with membership.
Note: Photofest registration and fee are not required if you participate with one of these groups.
