20:45 Photo Competition (Theme: Product Photography)
Please send us up to two of your images by email (epycphoto@gmail.com) before 7 PM the night before the event. To make our lives easier, please rename the files so that they have your name in them, e.g. Ahmed1.JPG and Ahmed2.JPG. We all vote on who has done the best job, and the winner gets a prize. We will not accept photo submissions on the day. If you don't show up, your photo will also not be eligible for a prize.
