2017 Kanata Carleton Cultural Festival

N.B. In the email that was sent April 19th the date for the next monthly camera club meeting was incorrect. The meeting will be held on Friday May 5th our usual first Friday of the month date.

The Kanata Seniors Camera Club will be participating in the 2017 Kanata Carleton Cultural Festival which will take place on Saturday, May 27th at the Earl of March High School.  Our camera club will be displaying photographs and advertising our club’s activities between the hours of noon and 8:15 p.m.   As well, we will have a hands-on photo activity for the children.

Pictures displayed must be mounted, framed or on canvas.  Framed or canvas pictures must have either a picture wire or hooks on the back for ease of hanging.  Pictures, including the frame, can be no wider than 2 feet and no higher than 5 feet.  Your name must be clearly printed on the back of your picture.  On the day of the event, pictures are to be dropped off between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and picked between 8:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.  A “People’s Choice” ribbon will be given to the favourite picture voted on by the public.

We require approximately 25 volunteers at this event throughout the day who will talk to the public about our display, help with the children’s activity and promote the Camera Club.

At the May 5th, meeting we would need to know the approximate size of the framed picture(s) you would like to display and time you can volunteer at the photo booth.  You do not need to volunteer in order to display your photograph(s).   As well, you may wish to volunteer for other activities at the Kanata Carleton Cultural Festival being held that day.

Additional information will be available at the next Camera Club meeting on May 5th or you may contact Val Collins at 613-406-9145 or by email.
