Moonlight Photography Night

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 15th of November at Domus-klubi club room nearby our darkroom in the ground floor of Vanha Domus (Väinämöisenkatu 11, Tampere).

Accessibility of the venue: Nearby club room there are no steps, only a couple of doorsteps. The club room is accessible with some help that we can provide, if needed.

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.

It is a good idea to have warm clothing, because the weather can be chilly. In any case we are gathering in every two hours inside to hear the new tasks.

Once the winners are chosen, the best teams and photos will be awarded. The time will be announced later. There will be General meeting, Award Ceremony of Moonlight photography night and Pre-Christmas party. There we will show you all the photos of the competition.

At the University of Tampere there will be an exhibition of the winning photographs. The time of the exhibition will be announced later.

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.
