Winter Photography Festival

Southampton Arts is thrilled to be launching our new Winter Photography Festival, thanks to the generosity of Bruce Power. A series of free talks, guided hikes and workshops by local photographers will culminate in a free to enter, free to see community photography exhibition in the Arts Centre for the month of March.

The twin challenges of lockdown and Bruce County winter may feel overwhelming but the stark beauty of winter beckons us outdoors for our mental and physical health. Our community is graced by incredibly talented photographers who illuminate our appreciation for our surroundings though the observation and skill of their captures. From the hobbyist with a smartphone to the professional with formidable equipment, we love seeing the world, particularly this little part of it, through the eye of the camera lens.

More details about the festival will be forthcoming, but we wanted to get things rolling with a weekly photo prompt. Prompts will be released each Sunday through to the end of March. Tag your submissions #southamptonartswinterphotofest on social media or email to us at

Submissions for each weekly prompt will be entered into a random draw for a $25 gift certificate for a local restaurant of your choice.
