ECO/PHOTO FEST 2020 - ONLINE
This year the Eco Fest and Photo Fest have merged into one virtual program. Beginning on October 10 this year (10/10/2020), Eco/Photo Fest will kick off a weeklong virtual conference that will focus on the connection between photographic instruction and relatable topics in the environment, ecological systems, and eco tourism.
Topics that blend ecology with photography will include:
- River’s Edge and Stories about Water
- Dark Skies and Starry Night
- Bike Repair/Maintenance (Movement Photography)
- Gardens and Food (Macrophotography)
- Outdoor Activities
- Fashion/Remake Runway
The format this year will include pre-recorded interviews with each of the panelists as well as an interactive “conference” style program broadcast. All will "go live" on October 10, 2020.
We will also host an “Outdoor Tourism Roundtable” during the week, to gather people around the table who are looking for innovative ways to market the activities that people will need to keep healthy and active and still socially distanced and safe.
Of course, the Photo Fest side will host a photography contest, through which participants will submit photos after having learned something through the photography instruction for prizes and recognition throughout the week following the conference. The official end of the program will be 10/24/2020, when the photo contest will end.
SPEAKERS (both photographers and eco speakers) will be updated below and all pre-recorded content will be updated on October 10, 2020. We will also update registration information for the outdoor tourism roundtable and the panel discussions. Stay tuned!
