The Northwest Territories Tourism Photo Library

Terms of Use and Registration Form

The Northwest Territories Tourism Photo Library collects high quality photographs representing tourism and travel products of the Northwest Territories. 

Photographs have been acquired for tourism marketing purposes and our agreements with photographers dictate that these images can only be used for purposes endorsed by Northwest Territories Tourism. Photos are intended for the use of travel professionals, including journalists, travel industry partners and tour operators who wish to promote the Northwest Territories as a tourism destination.

Use of any image is not permitted without specific permission. These electronic files must be discarded after use, and future use of any image must be approved by Northwest Territories Tourism.

All photos published by any means must carry the name of the photographer, if indicated, and the source. Standard format is Photographer Name/NWT Tourism.

Photos are available for 

  1. Editorial use only in magazines, newspapers and online.
  2. Recognized travel marketing organizations and purposes, featuring travel products of the Northwest Territories.

To access the Library, complete the Photo Request Form.   

Note. Requests for photo use for products other than tourism marketing efforts will be referred to the photographer, who will determine fees for use. Government agencies and private sector companies are encouraged to contact the photographers represented in this Library directly, as Northwest Territories Tourism does not purchase exclusive rights.
