The time has come for The School of The Photographic Arts: Ottawa’s annual A+ Exhibition! 

Join us for our annual celebration of SPAO's part-time community! Our jury has selected 7 winners from three submission categories:


The winners of these categories will be announced at 8PM at the A+ Exhibition Reception, taking place from 6-9PM on March 16, 2018!

Have your voice heard in voting for the People’s Choice prize category! Voting by ballot will take place from 6PM - 7:30PM. A raffle prize will also be awarded to one lucky A+ entrant! The winner must be present to claim their prize, or another name will be drawn.

Prizes will come from SPAO's local and national partners including Patrick Gordon Framing Studio, Black Squirrel Books & Espresso Bar, Wallack's Art Supplies, GPC Labworks, and PhotoEd Magazine. Every winner will also receive a gift certificate for SPAO part-time classes, and a SPAO merchandise item from our new store!
