Autumn General meeting / Prechristmas (PIZZA) party

Camera club Vastavalo holds an autumn general meeting on Friday the 26th of November starting at 6 pm at the Domus Club (Väinämöisenkatu 11). In order for the camera club to continue to function at least as good as it has until now, it needs a new board and some active members to join it. If you are interested (even a little), come along!

In the meeting we will select a new chairperson and other board members for the camera club. The composition of the board changes from year to year, and we believe that there is a suitable position to be found for everyone: what would you think of being either an exhibition, event or communications representative?

In addition, we will look at the financial situation (budget estimate) and future plans (action plan) of the camera club. Everyone is warmly welcome, and the members have the right to vote. The agenda is attached.

After the meeting, at about 7 pm (or 7:30 pm), it is time for the award ceremony for Moonlight Photography Night (QVKY) and Christmas party. The honorable jury selects the winning picture for each six assignments, and it also awards the best picture series with awesome prizes. There will be glögi, mulled wine (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic version), and Christmassy snacks served.

QVKY 2021

Camera Club Vastavalo’s Moonlight Photography Night (Kuunvalokuvausyö, QVKY) is a not-so-serious photography competition. In this team competition the technical quality of the photographs is not the point, but rather the brightness of ideas and having fun.

This year’s event will be held on Friday the 19th of November. This year teams can participate either by being physically present or remotely. The competition is also completely free for everyone so join us in large numbers! If you don’t have a team, you can still sign up, and we’ll find one for you.

The event starts at 18:00 at our darkroom in Väinämöisenkatu 11, in the easternmost corner of Vanha-Domus building or remotely. During the six hours of competition the teams are given two tasks every two hours at the darkroom or by whatsapp/telegram for those teams that have registered as remote team.

Your team should have one camera (film, digital, phone etc) of your own. The team only needs to know how to use their camera of choice. For film photographers: you can use Vastavalo’s darkroom for free to develop your photos after the event. The photos need to be returned at the latest on Tuesday the 23.11. at 23:59

The winners are announced at the general meeting/pre-christmas party on Friday 26.11. Best teams and photos are rewarded.

Welcome!

Please sign up your team with this form at the latest on Wednesday 17.11.
