Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 吉隆坡摄影节 [KLPF] 2012, Malaysia’s biggest and hottest imaging event with a combination of photography and travel elements is now open for all photographer fanatic at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre.
In KLPF 2012, the travel sector is getting a bigger exposure with the setting up of one hall specially dedicated to the FITE (Free Independent Travel Exchange) where opportunities are open to travel business operators and travel organisations to offer their products directly to free independent travellers.
Amongst the highlights of KLPF 2012 are:-
- Photo-creator of the Year 2012 where Malaysian photographers are set to vie for the award. This award recognises the creativity and potentials of emerging photographers in Malaysia. Participants are required to submit their work based on the theme “Seni & the City” where “seni” means art in the Malay language. I am glad my buddy Gary Ng is one of the finalist! Hope he win!
- “City” a photography exhibition through which we hope to encourage people to observe the surroundings of a city or to savour the process that is transforming our city. This exhibition is a collection of photo images submitted by members of the public.
- A special photo exhibition “Brushed by the Wind” takes on a pictorial travel to the southern part of the African continent spanning across countries like Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. The photos are really nice =)
There are regular interactive sessions like forums and seminars (Photomania and Travelmania) that are the all-time favourites of visitors every year.
KLPF is open to the public and admission is free of charge. Please get more updates in www.klpf.com.my or Facebook page “AdvancedImagesTravelution”.
|Sony launched new full Frame camera A99|
I was at KLPF 2012 on Friday because weekday is always less packed with the crowd and it was the launching of Sony Alpha 99 in Malaysia. It is the right place for you to explore new photography camera and other gadgets/tools that helps you improve your photography skill. It was hard for me to find parking in Mid Valley that day so I hope good luck for you guys to find a parking this weekend. Try find parking in Garden's Zone U top floor if you don't mind take a long walk.
