Orange Photo Week

You can't miss the Orange Photo week, a whole series of events fully dedicated to help the SL photographers community to share and collaborate!. The Orange Photo Week will take place from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th.

One of the great time of this week will be the Orange Island & Koinup Photo Contest Award Ceremony.

Around 50 photographers from Koinup took part in the Orange Island Photoweek Contest. Both teams are very impressed by the work that have been done. We saw some great talents expressing themselves trough the theme 'one Second of Reality'.

Already it is very hard to say who will be the winner, the jury will have a lot of troubles to choose the only one who will have the chance to participate to an exhibition at La Cantine in Paris.

Winners of the "Jury Prize" will be picked by a jury composed of Margherita Balzerani, curator at "Le Palais de Tokyo", Paris contemporary art museum, Marco Manray, renowned SL photographer and author of the book "Io, reporter in Second Life", and Vint Falken, award-winning SL photographer and distinguished Koinup member.

Meet us on Friday 27th on the Lower Plaza of Orange Island at 12.00am SLT. Edo Jay (Koinup, co-founder and tecnological director also known as Edoardo Turelli, you may know is also simply as EDO) and Natty Foggarty (Orange Island) will officially announce the winners of both Jury and Community Prize.

You will have the chance to have a talk with them and with the winners and discover the story behind the winning pictures. It will be a good occasion to meet your friends in person too.

Because this event is the event of the Photo community in SL, we will try to break a record. Join us for a family picture that'll make history!

This is the direct tp!
