This year's photography-themed 12th edition of Doors Open Toronto on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 has many free interactive opportunities for the public. Highlights include a photography contest, an "Ask a Photographer" program, talks by notable architectural photographers, performances by five ensembles drawn from Toronto's internationally acclaimed Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, and more.

"Doors Open Toronto Photography Contest: City in Focus 2011" encourages anyone 18 years or older to submit up to four photographs taken at official Doors Open Toronto buildings during the 2011 event. Winning photographs will be selected in four categories: best building exterior, best building interior, best architectural detail and best door. A professional panel will select the winning photos, which will be announced and published in the Toronto Star in late June and in the City's Our Toronto publication.
