Moonlight Photography Night 2017

Camera Club Vastavalo’s Moonlight Photography Night (Kuunvalokuvausyö, QVKY) is a not-so-serious photography competition for everyone. 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 3rd of November at TOAS Markuksentori club room (Tammelan puistokatu 14–16). The competition starts at 6PM sharp, so be there on time with your team so that you won’t miss out the first assignment given.

Teams can consist of 2 to 5 people. If you can’t find a team, you can still sign up, and we’ll form an extra team at the event. The first 10 teams to sign up can enter the competition.

During the six hours of competition the teams are given two tasks every two hours. There are six tasks altogether. 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.

Once the winners are chosen, the best teams and photos will be awarded at the Moonlight Photography Guild, on the 24th November as a part of Vastavalo’s Christmas Party. There we will show you all the photos of the competition. There will also be an exhibition of the winning photographs at the University of Tampere.

For members of Vastavalo all this fun is free, and for others only 5 euros / person. The participant fee will be paid on the spot, so please bring the correct sum with you. It includes materials for the tasks, a delicious soup dinner, coffee and tea as well as the digital/analogue printing costs after the competition. However, we would like to remind you that by paying our membership fee, which is also only 5 euros, you can join the event totally free of charge. You can do it even on the spot!


Please sign up with this form by 2pm on Thursday 2nd November 2017.
