Come down to the SAFRA Photo Convention on 23 Nov 2013!!!


Calling all photography lovers! 
SAFRA Photographic Club will be organising the SAFRA Photo Convention on this Sat, 23 Nov 13 at SAFRA Mount Faber. SAFRA Photo Convention is held biennially and usually a renowned overseas photographer will be invited to speak on a particular theme. This year, SAFRA Photographic Club has decided to focus on areas of conflict, with the aim of highlighting our NSmen’s role in national defense and the upholding of peace. We want to impress upon our NSmen the importance of National Service and the price of war. 
There will also be an exciting exhibition of the speaker’s photographs from assignments in Afghanistan and Iraqyou and you will be able to hear from the photographer's experience.
Participants can also pick up some photo editing skills at the Adobe’s workshop on how to enhance your photographs with their software. It is for all participants during the afternoon and included in the ticket price.
There will be an open invitation for online submission of inspiring stories related to our National Service. Selected stories will be published online. Every week a lucky winner will get a free ticket to come for our event on 23rd Nov.
All participants will also get a goodie bag, with increasing surprises thanks to our sponsors!
