Theme of the next thematic discussion/contest (http://www.meetup.com/Photography-in-Berlin/events/143624972/) picked by the last winner, Anna, is: "No theme... Show your best, or whatever you want to discuss"!
No special skills are expected and everyone is more than welcome to participate as well as join the informal discussion! In the end it is more about having a drink, a chat and a discussion with like minded people, rather than the competition itself.
Here are the meetup specifics:
Date: Wednesday, 27 November, 7:00 PM
Location: "Kantina von Hugo", Paul-Linke Ufer 23, 10999, Berlin. U-Bahn: Schönleinstraße, Görlitzer Bahnhof.
Max. number of photos: 3 (please rank them)
Submission deadline: Wednesday, 27 November, 5:00 PM
Submission email: [masked]
First we are going to shuffle and view all photos without disclosing their authors, vote on the winner and then, before revealing results, have a detailed discussion on every submitted photo. Winner will get the right to select a topic for the next contest.
• Please rank your photos (1, 2, 3) so that in case of many RSVP's we can easily reduce the max. number to two by skipping the third one.
• It is also important that photos are sent by email before the deadline, as slideshow has to be prepared in advance.
Other ideas and suggestions are always welcome!
Please be aware that the personal safety of you and your guest(s) is your responsibility for the duration of the above mentioned Photography in Berlin meet up event. Thanks!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
