The Contact theme for 2007 is "the Constructed Image" and the way it's defined is essentially related to photography being used, along with other mediums, in art of mixed (constructed) forms.

For the blogTO Contact 2007 online exhibit, however, (as well as a blogTO print exhibit opening at Brassaii on May 4th) we're interpreting the theme with a TWIST!

The blogTO exhibits aim to represent a view of our city, made up of eclectic images taken by several Torontonians. These images collectively form a "constructed image" of our city, through the eyes of our readers.

What does this mean? It means that you're encouraged to submit one fabulous photograph from your collection that was taken in Toronto. It can be ANYTHING (as long as it's related to Toronto). .

We'd love to see your favourite shot you've ever taken in or around Toronto. Together, these images will create a "constructed image" of the city we call home.

Photos submitted to this pool will be featured in the gallery for the duration of the festival, and select photos from the pool will be printed on postcards to distributed at festival events and exhibits across the city.

Submissions are limited to one photograph per person. Questions? Leave us a message in the blogTO @ Contact 2007 pool.

blogTO will also be hosting a print exhibit during the festival that will feature photographs from local photobloggers. Stay tuned for more information regarding the exhibit soon.
