ROM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest

Good afternoon,

I would like to extend an opportunity for your Richmond Hill Camera Club members to participate in the ROM Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest in our youth (13-17) and adult categories. An amazing line-up of prizes includes a trip for two to Halifax, Nikon D750 DSLR Kit courtesy of Henry’s, and the winning photos will be on display at the ROM!

If you are looking for inspiration, your members can visit the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition on now until March 29, 2020 featuring all new photographs revealing striking wildlife, breathtaking landscapes and remarkable beauty of our natural world.

Please reply with your interest to receive ROM contest details and a unique promo code to save 15% off online tickets to Wildlife Photographer of the Year and other ROM exhibitions.

I’m looking forward to your reply.
Warm wishes,

Latow International Audio-Visual Festival

Latow International Audio-Visual Festival, April 18th – 2020
Call for Submissions
This is an invitation to you and your camera club members to submit your audio-visual
productions for consideration in the 2020 Latow International Audio-Visual Festival.
This is not a competition but a premiere exhibition showcase.
There is no charge to submit a show to the Festival.
The festival presentation is designed to expose and promote the selected productions,
their creators as well as the audio-visual medium to a wider public audience and is regarded
as one of the largest annual international audio-visual  festivals of its kind
giving the selected shows the opportunity to get wide public exposure
using the AV medium derived from still photography.
Shown on a theatre size screen with surround sound the Festival gives a new appreciation of the images presented
by using the AV medium in unique and imaginative ways that integrates them with dynamic soundtracks.
Last year the festival included submissions from Canada and internationally
from the UK, Ireland, Australia, Norway and South Africa.
The Latow International AV Festival takes place on Saturday April 18th, 2020 – 7:00pm at the Art Gallery of Burlington
as part of Latow’s major annual Photography Weekend (this year with Kas Stone) and will typically have an audience
who come from all over Southern Ontario and New York State to view the shows presented.
One of the selected shows will receive the “Award for Artistic Merit” given jointly by the Art Gallery
of Burlington and the Latow Photographers Guild to recognize the artistic qualities of one of the productions.
Determined by a panel of artists from the other guilds at the AGB the award is given out on the night
of the Festival presentation and is accompanied by a $500.00 cash honourarium.
The submission deadline is January 25th, 2020
Please download the “Guidelines and Specifications” to submit your show for consideration.
If you have any questions please contact me ….
