Latow International Audio-Visual Festival
April 13th – 2019
To all photographers creating audio-visual slide shows this is an invitation to submit your productions for consideration in this year’s Latow International Audio-Visual Festival. The Latow AV Festival is regarded as one of the largest annual audio-visual festivals of its kind giving photographers the opportunity to get wide public exposure in a premiere showcase for the AV medium derived from still photography.
This is not a competition but an exhibition showcase to expose and promote the selected shows and their creators as well as the audio-visual medium to a wider public audience.
There is no charge to submit a show to the Festival.
The festival this year takes place on Saturday April 13th, 2019 – 7:00pm in the main gallery of the Art Gallery of Burlington as part of Latow’s major annual Photography Weekend (this year with Richard Martin) and will typically have an audience who come from all over Southern Ontario and New York State to view the shows presented. Shown on a theatre size screen with surround sound the concept is to entertain and at the same time give a new appreciation of still photography by using the AV medium in unique and imaginative ways, integrating them with dynamic soundtracks.
One of the selected shows will also have the distinction of being selected for a special $500.00 (Canadian) cash award sponsored by the Art Gallery of Burlington and the Latow Photographers Guild as a way of recognizing the “artistic” qualities of the AV medium and will be presented at the end of the night’s Audio-Visual Festival.
Last year the Festival included submissions from across Canada and internationally from the US, the UK, Germany, and Australia.
Submissions will be accepted up until Friday, January 25th, 2019.
Good luck with your submissions and I look forward to seeing your productions…

For the adventurous amongst the Canadian photographic community, as well as my usual Morocco Desert Tours I’m also now offering Landscape Tours in Andalusia, Spain. Being based in the region means I offer very competitive prices yet I come with many reviews across the 8 years of running these. You’ll also find a link to my personal portfolio website below ‘Colours’, which gives you some idea of my take on the locations you can visit. I’d be happy to offer a 10% discount for club members.
Best regards, Darren Lewey
