Your Exhibition - “International Reflections of Berlin”

  • Aug 1, 2013 · 12:00 AM

Dear all,

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 (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 Uploaduntil 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 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.

    What happened to this event? I am getting concerned about the confidentiality and integrity of this event.

      Unfortunately a few of the location we talked to didn't work out. After three of us putting a lot of our time into it, we needed to focus on our other life commitments again. You are welcome to support us!

      Thanks for letting us know. If you have informed us at the time, I would have been more than happy to help. Hopefully our photos are in good hands.

    We are still in the middle of organizing a venue and might get something for September. Please give us a couple of days and we will tell you the next details.

    Meanwhile: the upload is still open if you still want to join :-)!

      Hi Vytautas, we are caught up with non photography related life projects at the moment. I would like to give this another go sometime. Maybe beginning of next year.

    Got some up as well. I suggest to take care of the right size later on though, because I really wouldn't want any outsider to download my pictures to hang 'em on their walls without my knowing it...

      Exactly! That´s why we just ask everyone to have their pictures ready in the right size to get them later on for our prints :-)!
