iPhoneographySA in Cape Town a HUGE success !
On Tuesday night we finished up with the 2012 leg of the iPhoneographySA exhibitions in Cape Town. The event was held at the amazing Roodebloom Studios in Woodstock, which turned out to be the perfect venue.
We started setting up the venue on Monday morning, and because of the unique nature of the venue, we had specially designed hanging platforms created for the event. Our Curator, Inke, was a superstar in getting all the images hung up, and eventually on Tuesday afternoon, we were ready to roll !
They event was a HUGE success, and I estimate around 400-500 people came through the doors on the evening. We had 120 photos on display, and I overheard many conversations about how impressed everybody was with the exhibition The vibe was great with a DJ and a guy playing the trumpet and the food was amazing. All in all, I can honestly say, that I am super proud with the way the whole event panned out.
The iPhoneography exhibitions this year, have FAR FAR exceeded my expectations with the both events producing amazing images & results.
It was also a tough job trying to choose all the winners in Cape Town, but eventually we managed to get our winners. In 3rd Place, Robyn Hobson with here image Formal Friday. In 2nd place Lionel Botha with his very cool looking image, Cosmos. And in First place was Kobus Dippenaar with his image called Concrete Jungle.
Some of the images will also be on display at the V&A Waterfront till Sunday afternoon, so if you in the area make sure you get down there !!
I really want to thank the iStore team for the support & sponsorship of the events. The whole team went out of their way to make this a great event, and I can’t wait to see what we can come with next year !
My goal going forward with iPhoneographySA is to try and grow the iPhoneography community in South Africa. We will be using this site & the iPhoneographySA Facebook page to grow the community, and organise events and keep up to date with the latest iPhoneography news in South Africa. Stay tuned !!
Thank you to everyone who supported these events. Thank you !
