Moonlight Photography Night 2020 REMOTELY

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 30th of October completely remotely. This year’s competition will be special one and comletely free for everyone so join us in large numbers!

Traditionally people compete in teams. If you can’t find a team, you can still sign up, and we’ll find a team for you.
The event starts at 6PM. During the six hours of competition the teams are given two tasks every two hours. There are six tasks altogether. The initial meeting will be held remotely and after that the tasks will be sent via WhatsApp/Telegram or e-mail.

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. The time will be announced later. There will be General meeting where the winners will be announced. There we will show you all the photos of the competition.

Again, one year has passed almost unnoticed and it is time to look to the future! Camera club Vastavalo holds an autumn general meeting on Saturday the 30th 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!

This time 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. We also renew the rules. Everyone is warmly welcome, and the members have the right to vote. The agenda is attached, the proposal of the renewed rules will follow.

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.

What? Camera Club Vastavalo’s autumn general meeting, QVKY awards and Christmas party
Where? Domus Club, Väinämöisenkatu 11 (Vanha Domus)
When? Saturday 30th November 2019 starting at 6 pm
