Zoom Photo Festival Saguenay, international meeting of photojournalism was born in 2010. This first Canadian festival dedicated to photojournalism was established by the International Group Photo and La Pulperie de Chicoutimi, Musée du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, from a concept by photographer Michel Tremblay.

International Photo Media Group (IPGM) is a non-profit organization (NPO) whose mandate is to promote photography. To do this, IPGM offers various products to reach professionals, amateurs, and enthusiasts of photography.

Zoom Photo Festival Launches Wide View, a new publishing platform

Wide View presents a unique perspective on contemporary issues brought to life by photojournalists from here and elsewhere. This new tool from Zoom Photo Festival is a publishing platform that will evolve over time and provide new resources for photojournalists so they may tell their stories in their own way.

More information to come. In the meantime, check out the first story by photographer Roger Lemoyne: The Wave.
