Each year imagineNATIVE invites members of the Canadian and international Indigenous media arts community to participate in two independent juries. The Sun Jury and the Moon Jury will each adjudicate a selection of this year’s prizes, which will then be announced at the Awards Gala on Saturday, October 22nd.

October weather in Toronto will be all over the map, so we advise guests (especially those travelling from warmer, softer climes) to bring warm clothing and dress in layers. Click on the Weather button to the left for the latest forecast. Tuesday 18 October will have a high of 27 degrees celsius/centigrade while the weekend will be very cold with a high of 12 degrees. Please also pack for wet weather as there is a chance of rain forecast.
