Everything you need to know about the Artona Ambassador Program

Himika, 2021 Ambassador from John Oliver Secondary

Update: The application deadline has been extended to September 30, 2022

We're all about creating strong and long-lasting relationships with everyone we work with. The students we photograph are at the heart of our business we wouldn't be here if it weren't for them. Every year, we photograph thousands of students and form unique relationships with each one. We get to meet their families, friends and learn about their hobbies, goals and future plans. With the conversations we have been having on our social media about #studentmentalhealth over the last few years, new layers to these relationships are forming.

We want to continue growing these meaningful connections. We are looking forward to offering this exclusive opportunity again to the class of 2023.

Madhav, 2021 Ambassador from Hugh McRoberts Secondary
