contactPineRidge Arts Council is proud to once again be part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, the largest annual photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural experience in Canada, with over 200 exhibitions and happenings from May 1-31 in the Greater Toronto Area.

Founded in 1997, CONTACT is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and fostering photography and related media with an annual Festival in May and year-round programming in the CONTACT Gallery.

CONTACT’s community initiatives foster a wide range of interest in photography and enable meaningful exchanges between the people who make and present art, and those that view it.

The foundation of CONTACT was based on an open call to participate, enabling emerging artists and photographers to show their work concurrent with exhibitions of works by leading professionals. Today the Open Exhibitions continue to encourage neighbourhood involvement at local galleries, community centres, educational and international institutions, cafes, retail stores, and many alternative locations.

He is also responsible for the Oshawa CC's Judge Training Program. He is currently Judge's Chair for the Ontario Council of Camera Clubs, a provincial organization with member clubs across Ontario. Since 2015 his creativity and work has brought about several positive improvements to the Competitions and Judging process in the OCCC such as:

• Designed and implemented a system to measure judging accuracy.

• Authored the OCCC Judge Training course which Norm co-teaches.

• Created a way to identify promising candidates to train as future judges.

• Implemented a system to develop new "Judges in Training" with a 1-2 year program, so they can earn their OCCC Judge accreditation credentials.

• Achieved more consistent and accurate Judging results in OCCC competitions

In 2019 Norm was awarded the OCCC "Technical Achievement Award" to recognize his accomplishments to improve the competition and judging process within the Ontario Council and their member clubs. He judges and lectures regularly on topics about improving photography and competition skills.
