Sorry for the cross-post, but I think this may be worth mentioning and be of
interest for the whole panoramic community.
Photokina takes place from September 23th to 28th 2008 in Cologne/Germany.
The IVRPA will have its booth in hall 9, amongst others like Fotocommunity,
the biggest online photographic community and PlusX award.
As already announced in our contest there will be an exhibition of prints,
high-resolution gigapixel images and also interactive VR panoramas. We also
plan to have presentations, showcasing the work and techniques of our trade.
We hope to gather the interest of both the general public and our own
members with different types of sessions.
One of the main goals of our presence at Photokina is to promote VR
photography. Photokina provides a great platform to share ideas with other
photographers and get new inputs for your own work. That is why we need
members who help at our booth to answer questions and teach our visitors
about VR photography.
As two years ago (see http://photokina06.ivrpa.org/
), IVRPA members will
once again do a live coverage of the whole fair with interactive VR
panoramas. The panoramas will be stitched at the booth and be available
online at http://photokina08.ivrpa.org/
We will try to do a group reservation for the accommodation. For members
that help at our booth for 2 days and more IVPRA will pay for their
accommodation cost. Since we have to move forward with the booking of the
accommodation, the DEADLINE FOR THE GROUP RESERVATION is Friday August 22th
If you want to join us and help at our booth, please fill in your details at
. You can also fill in there
your details for the group reservation.
If you have inputs and wishes for sessions at our IVRPA booth, you can
propose them at http://photokina08.ivrpa.org/participate/sessions
See you in Cologne!
