This meetup is the following event to the earlier event "Your Picture to the world" on 19th June 2013. It was an intense brainstorming session with a very creative group on one of the warmest day of this Summer. Thank you everyone for participating in the discussion and your valuable input!
Now our call is out for the whole meetup group:
Join us, get your pictures out there and be part of the first “Photography in Berlin” exhibition this autumn 2013!
The topic: “International Reflections of Berlin”
You sure know this from back home: Local people living in their hometowns don’t really explore their “natural” habitat or don’t recognize those little quirky, wonderful things that make a city like Berlin so special. But as a newbie you suddenly do and you are eager to explore your new surrounding.
So-to-say: We, as short term/long term New-Berliners from around the globe, have a different perspective to reflect Berlin's life. We see the differences to our home towns or just the everyday beauty, from abandoned building to hidden places in parks, the hipsters in Mitte, dads carrying babies, dogs without leashes, street art at unexpected places, etc.
Whatever makes Berlin different, irritating, beautiful or special for you...
So bring your photos from your collection out to exhibit and also support a social project as they get their spot on our special sector at photocircle.net (with your permission!)
How it works:
1. Step one: Select up to 3 (max) of your favourite picture showing your "International Reflection of Berlin”
→ Size: All photos have to be big enough to be printed in decent size and quality (at least 1600x1200px)
→ Copyright: All image rights must be owned by you.
→ Privacy rights: Please no portraits of single people without expressed permission or picture who violate the strict German privacy laws for images (please google!).
We will have to delete every picture not following the policies.
Minimum post processing is allowed to increase the quality of the photo but not to change the perception of the photo.
2. Step two: Upload them to “Your Photo Exhibition - Picture Upload” until July 31 /2013.
Your Photo Exhibition - Picture Upload
→ Give every photo a short-catchy title - What aspect of Berlin does it catch for you?
3. Step three: Join us at our August–discussion meetup to flip through the images and select the best ones to be shown in the exhibition
This meet-up will take please early in August. Date will be announced soon, so keep a look on the upcoming meet-up events !
IMPORTANT : If your picture is selected for the exhibition, you will have to pay for the printing costs yourself. Depending on the size this will probably be around 10-20€ per image.
However: We have a very good deal with photocicle.net for high quality prints and you can keep your piece of art for your private home exhibition afterwards :-)!
Please keep the original picture files ready for us to collect.
