Flash Photographic Festival 2018 – Digital Press Kit

Flash Photographic Festival is back in action for the FIFTH year. 

WHAT is Flash? Simply, Flash is a celebration of photographic arts. 

WHO is Flash?  Are you a photographic artist? Then you can be part of Flash Fest. All are welcome. This year we have 33 venues and over 90 participating photographers.  Flash features local Winnipeg and Manitoba artists, and will this year welcome a group show from NPAC/APPC, The News Photographers Association of Canada!

WHERE is Flash?  See our handy map for all of this years FLASH venues! 

WHEN is Flash? October. 1st to 31st, annually since 2014.

WHY is Flash? The Flash mission is to highlight photographic arts through the partnership of photographers and local businesses, creating small galleries throughout the city and province, thus making photographic art accessible where you dine, at your dentists office or in local galleries. 

We are keen to see photographic artists of all ages and skill levels out for photo walks, The Dodge + Burn Lectures, seminars put on by The Lab Works, and of course our Opening Night Soiree and our Festival Wrap Celebration. All events are listed on our website. 

The Flash Dodge + Burn series accepts donations that go to support Winnipeg Harvest. We’re happy to once again support this local food bank. Once again,our lecture series is back at Photo Central with some interesting new topics and speakers!
