Photography Call for Entry

We are looking for photography for the North West Photo Fest Exhibition

Register and share your photo for our photography show

UPDATED: The deadline to register is now Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Each year the Annual North West Photo Fest officially opens with a photo exhibition. The North West Photo Fest celebrates, promotes and explores the challenges of photography, and supports tourism in Kitimat and the northwest region.

Register by filling out the Call for Entry registration form.  The deadline to register has been extended to Tuesday, July 31, 2018. There is no entry fee to participate in the photo exhibition; however, other Photo Fest events may require a fee; visit www.northwestphotofest for more details.

The theme for this year’s North West Photo Fest is ‘The Wilderness around Us’, and whether you are a beginner or professional photographer, we invite you to share your photo.  The show will officially open with a reception on Thursday, August 9, 2018, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Upstairs Gallery of the Kitimat Museum & Archives, and will be on display until Saturday, September 8, 2018.

As everyone today carries a camera from a mobile phone to a professional model, photography is more accessible than ever and can bring people from the Northwest together. Whether you are a beginner or professional photographer, we invite you to share up to 2 photos.

Once you have registered for this free event, you may want to participate in some of the other Photo Fest events – workshops, photo walks, and photo adventures.  The fees are very reasonable at $25 ($10 for students) for the weekend events and July outings ranging from free to $12.  There will also be a free toy photography session.  Visit www.northwestphotofest for more details.

If you require framing, Please contact Angela Eastman at the time of registration for details as we have frames available to use for the exhibition.

Frame sizes are:

  • 16×20” (mat size fits 11×14”)
  • 20×24” (mat size fits 14×18”).
