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
- Editorial use only in magazines, newspapers and online.
- Recognized travel marketing organizations and purposes, featuring travel products of the Northwest Territories.
Users of NWT Tourism’s Photo Library shall indemnify NWT Tourism and all its servants, agents, employees, contractors and persons for whom NWT Tourism is in law responsible and all other users of the Photo Library and shall hold each of them harmless from and against any liabilities, claims, damages, losses and expenses, due to, arising from or to the extent contributed to by:
- any breach by the user of any of the provisions of this agreement; and
- any act or omission of the user or its servants, employees, licensees, successors and assigns for whom the user is in law responsible, with the use of the Photo Library or any image from the Photo Library.
This indemnity shall survive the expiry of the term or earlier termination of this user agreement.

Note. The use of photos other than for tourism marketing efforts does not fall within the rights agreements NWT Tourism has with photographers. If an individual is looking for specific photos for use outside of tourism marketing, then please contact photographers within the NWT directly.
