Support the Iconic Toronto
Photo Contest and Exhibit

Iconic Toronto celebrates the culture and history of the city through the lens of photography


It’s going to be a fabulous fall and we are excited to announce the return of our annual photo contest! We look forward to seeing all the entries by local creators. The contest is supported by Tdot Shots and our sponsors, judges and volunteers. You can get involved!

This amazing city presents so many opportunities for amateur and professionals alike to flex their creative skills, snap photos, edit and submit to our contest. Submission is as simple as using our hashtag #iconictoronto on Instagram, during the contest period.

How to get involved 

Photographer or Creator? Entering your photos and images is simple. During the contest period simply use our hashtag #iconictoronto. That’s it. We also encourage you to follow @tdot_shots and our sponsors.

Are you a potential sponsor? We need your help! We welcome you to:

  • Sponsor our events (support the community, promote your business)
  • Hire us to create a photography event for your organization¬†
  • Collaborate with us on social media

Sponsors really helped us during our 2021 contest. Your support helps us with costs and the furnishing of prizes for the contest in fall 2022. We are also looking for venues to host a photo exhibit in 2023. We hope you will get involved with both events!
