Welcome to the 27th annual Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Photography is a powerful art form that connects and exposes us to new and diverse perspectives. The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, the largest and most prestigious photography event of its kind in the world, provides an opportunity to celebrate the art and impact of photography. The 2023 Festival features more than 175 exhibitions across the Greater Toronto Area and provides exposure for more than 500 talented artists.

This spring, CONTACT will showcase the work of one of Canada’s most accomplished artists: Jin-me Yoon, the 2022 Scotiabank Photography Award Winner.

CONTACT will also showcase the works of the 2023 New Generation Photography Award Winners.

At Scotiabank, we know that art can enrich and inspire our communities, which is why we are proud to champion Canadian artists from coast-to-coast-to-coast. We are deeply committed to celebrating artistic achievements of Canadians through the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, the Scotiabank Photography Award and the New Generation Photography Award now in its sixth year. Scotiabank is proud to serve as the title sponsor for this important celebration.

Please join me in celebrating all of this year’s photographers featured in the 27th annual Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
