Zoom Photo Festival Saguenay, international meeting of photojournalism was born in 2010. This first Canadian festival dedicated to photojournalism was established by the International Group Photo and La Pulperie de Chicoutimi, Musée du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, from a concept by photographer Michel Tremblay.
Since the beginning of the Festival, La Pulperie de Chicoutimi played a key role, especially thanks to the expertise of its staff. It is this expertise that has enabled the Zoom Photo Festival Saguenay to present exhibitions with standards specific to museums.
