The Chang School Photography Exhibition

The Chang School's Photography Exhibition, organized by instructor Joël Bénard, gives students an opportunity to display their strongest photographic work in a juried show. Students enrolled in visual studies courses – including Photography Studies, Film Studies, Image Arts, and Digital Art Production – are eligible to submit their images. Each year, leading professionals from the photography community select several works for their particular merit. The winning artists receive valuable awards that include gifts from photography-supply outlets and arts organizations.

Exhibitors are welcome to invite guests to the opening reception, where they can mingle with their colleagues and gallery visitors.

Our 2020/21 exhibition will take place May 1–14, 2021*. Visit ryerson.ca/ce/photoexhibit for information on attending the exhibit or volunteering your time, and view our past winners, awards, and sponsors.

*Dates and guidelines for attending the exhibit and opening reception are subject to change. Visit ryerson.ca/ce/photoexhibit for updates.
