Please note that this program is invite-only and closed to the general public. Submissions for the 2023 program are now closed.

This juried program is open to those who are developing a photobook, or for those with well-developed projects considering the book form for their work. This is an excellent opportunity for artists to have their work seen by local and international publishers, designers, curators, and editors in a casual, one-to-one exchange. Artists will receive conceptual and practical insight about their projects, and gain invaluable feedback for applying to the Burtynsky Grant. Photobooks seen at this event have been picked up for publication!

This event is organized in conjunction with the CONTACT Photobook Fair on Saturday, April 29.

Please note that due to limited space, all submissions will go through a selection process. Submissions are free. Participants will be notified by Friday, April 14. There is a $50+HST participation fee for successful applicants.
