Calling all Photographers – Submit to RMG Exposed 2018!


Support The Robert McLaughlin Gallery’s Annual Juried Fundraising Photography Auction!

Submission Deadline: September 6, 11:59pm
RMG Exposed: November 24, 7-10pm

Now in its 9th year, RMG Exposed is a night of art, auction, entertainment, and spectacle in support of free public programming and arts education throughout Durham Region.

Each year we put a call out to photographers for donated works that will help to raise funding for free public arts programming for kids, families, and communities that might face obstacles when accessing art. Each year over 60 free public programs are made available to children, families, and those who face obstacles accessing art.

Prizes awarded each year include a solo exhibition at the RMG as part of the Contact Photography Festival, and numerous cash prizes.


The deadline to submit works is September 6. RMG Exposed will take place on November 24.

The Robert McLaughlin Gallery will offer selected artists one complimentary RMG Exposed ticket for each work selected. The RMG will also offer a charitable tax receipt to artists for their work up to $1,000. As a “thank you” to the selected artists, the RMG will also issue a one year RMG Family Membership to the named donor.
