The annual calendar is published on sustainably forested paper, as a companion to the 8th annual AFC Exhibit, showing in North Vancouver, BC running September 29 thorough to October 3rd.

The calendar also features images of twelve artwork selected from the 2016 AFC Exhibit and virtual show. Many of which will be on display in the exhibit at the 2016 AFC Festival.
