2018 Latow AV Festival Call for Entries

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 using FULL HD projection with surround sound in the main gallery of the AGB, the concept is to not only entertain but to also give a new appreciation of still photography presented by using the AV medium in unique and imaginative ways by integrating them with dynamic soundtracks.

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.

This year one of the shows that has been selected for presentation at the Festival will also be selected for a special $500.00 (Canadian) cash award sponsored by the Art Gallery of Burlington and the Latow Photographers Guild to help promote the “art” of the AV medium.

The festival will be taking place Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 7 PM in Burlington ON.
