2017 Media Kit

FLASH is Four!

Flash Photographic Festival arrived on the scene in 2014 to promote the art of photography. The idea of partnering with local business to create many small art galleries around the city, and the province, in order to promote the artist as well as the venue (business) has forged new connections between art and business. We are happy to continue this endeavor in 2017.

This year we are excited to have an unofficial kick off at Nuit Blanche with our projected portraits! Come out and have your photo taken and projected onto the McKim Building. The official opening of the festival will happen on Monday, October 2nd, at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, where our salon show will hang for the month! We couldn’t be happier to be back at ‘home’ in the WAG again this year!

You better take out your calendars and make a lot of notes, because we have a busy month of Octobeer planned! Once again we are delighted that Photo Central will be hosting our Dodge+Burn lecture series, with donations going to support Winnipeg Harvest. Flash believes that being involved in the community is important and we like that Harvest makes sure that people are fed! Other events include a Photographic Garage Sale, Photo Walks, a pub crawl and many educational events include a colour management workshop at LabWorks!

A full calendar of events can be found on the website.
