OCCC Capture Day and Awards Day
The OCCC Capture Day and Awards Day are coming up the weekend of October 19 and 20, 2019 at the Edward Village Hotel, at Highway 7 and the DVP.
Capture Day on the Saturday includes a number of tutorials and workshops, and the registration of $90 for OCCC members like us includes food services. There are also raffle prize giveaways at the end of the day. Bring your cameras (and tripod with remote if you are doing the painting workshop) to these workshops: Afternoon Portrait Shoot with Johan Sorensen from Panasonic, Painting with Light with Joe Leduc, and the optional Sensual Portraits with Johan Sorensen for the 3 hour shoot in the evening ($60, limit 30 participants).
The Awards Day on the Sunday showcases the Open Challenge Awards. The $80 registration fee gives you the continental breakfast, a keynote speech by James Cowie from Photo Trekkers on Shooting in Africa, a hot/cold brunch, and our Awards/Prints show and big Awards/Rewards Raffle.
You can go to some events separately, such as the Friday night Reptilia shoot ($30) and the Saturday evening model shoot. Similarly, you can sign up for the Awards Show only ticket ($25), which includes dessert and coffee and the print show, in which case come at 12:30 pm to be seated for the show.
The registration is open at the www.O3C.ca website under O3C events. The forms are located at the bottom of the Awards or Capture info packages.
The early bird special of a free raffle ticket for the big Awards/Rewards raffle ($10) is in effect until the 15th of September for those who register before then.
