The Township of Russell is inviting hobby, amateur, and professional photographers to submit their images for the Township of Russell Photography Expo!  

This year’s theme is ‘Hometown Future’. The township wants photographers to consider where they might imagine where their hometown is headed. What has changed, what is changing, and what will forever stay the same? Who is going to be a part of the future of our hometown? How does one visually represent both nostalgia and imagination? Where does history meet progress in the Township of Russell? 

Submissions and participation for this event are free. Five images for consideration to an independent jury featuring critical curators, professionals in the field, and local arts leaders. One winner from each of the following categories will have their image printed and displayed as outdoor public art in the Township!  

The categories include:  


  • Best Youth (ages 18 under)  
  • Best Portrait 
  • Best Landscape 
  • Best Experimental 

The submission deadline is Monday August 22, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. 

The Expo of submissions will take place during the Russell Art At Night soirée on September 10, 2022.  

Anyone from Canada can enter this competition, however all images must have been taken within the Township of Russell boundaries. A map of the Township boundaries can be found at www.russell.ca/maps.,
