Calling all photographers! The Latow Audio Visual Festival is accepting entries for their showcase.

The Latow AV Festival is an open annual event that has been held at the Art Gallery of Burlington for over 30 years. It’s regarded as the largest annual festival of its kind giving photographers the opportunity to get wide public exposure in a showcase for the digital AV medium.

If selected, your video will be shown on a theatre size screen with surround sound in the main gallery of the AGB, the concept is to entertain and at the same time give a new appreciation of still photography presented by using the AV medium and integrating it with soundtracks in unique and imaginative ways.

All shows submitted are evaluated for artistic as well as technical quality. The factors that go into making the final selection are not just the quality of the photography but the quality of the soundtrack, how the images and soundtrack work together, and how artistically the show uses the AV medium to further the overall look of the production. The final selection will also be made based on how different shows work together to make up the full festival roster.

The festival will be taking place Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 7 PM in Burlington ON.
