The Exposure Photography Festival is a registered non-profit society established in 2004. Exposure is run by an enthusiastic Board of Directors who are devoted to photography. The festival's mission is to generate participation in photographic image making and to engage practitioners, photo professionals, and audiences in dialogue about the medium, its past, present and future. Like photography itself, Exposure embraces a broad audience, including beginners and experienced image makers, amateurs and professionals, and photographers of all ages and interest levels. Exposure seeks to expand awareness, to educate, inform, and delight.

2019 will be the 15th year of Alberta’s one and only photography festival. The Festival hosts over 30,000 attendees annually. Most events and activities are free and open to the public. The Board of Directors looks forward to welcoming the community to an exciting and inspiring festival, celebrating photography and photographers from near and far.

The next edition of Exposure Photography Festival will take place during 31st January - 29th February 2020. Special events will take place during 31st January - 2nd February to celebrate the opening of the festival.
