During February 2016, Orasis Photo Club declared their 1st Pancyprian Photography Competition Titled "CYPRUS CARNIVAL 2016". Both members and non-members of the club were invited from all across Cyprus to participate with photos taken between 3rd - 13th March at any Carnival related event on the Island.
During this time, we were approached by ChoiceFM and KlikFM for an incredible sponsorship opportunity where we were given access to 2 of their main events (Big Street Party Carnival Edition & ChoiceFM Treasure Hunt) which we documented fully with our lenses, providing them with incredible photos and providing us in return with a wide Pancyprian Coverage, including a recorded radio advert which was played on their station for the entire duration of the competition (3rd-13th March)! The results were fantastic and we were thrilled to have received such a positive response from people who wanted to know more about our club and join us! We have now reached the point where all we have to say is Orasis and people know who we are which was beyond our wildest expectations.
On the 27th March 2016, we met with our independent Judging Panel who scored each of the photos separately, with their scores calculated together at the end. The Judging panel consisted of:

Orasis Photo Club members were very busy this carnival season! Apart from attending the carnival parades and other events associated with this period, our club also organised it's first Photographer Carnival Party at the BRITTANIA RESTAURANT in Limassol. This was complete with a DJ (DJ EASY SOUND) and certificates were awarded for the Best Carnival Costumes. Both members and non-members who attended had a great time and everyone is already looking forward to the next carnival party we are already planning for 2017!
Both members and non-members also took this opportunity to take photos for our first Pancyprian Photography Competition "CYPRUS Carnival 2016". We can't wait to see their photos! Good luck to everyone who took part!
On Wednesday. 9th March 2016, Orasis Photo Club members once again got involved in a unique experience, thanks to their Media Sponsors (Choice FM & KlikFM) and covered the Big Street Party, Carnival Edition.
With a mixture of both professional and amateur photographers on the scene, members were able to capture the event to the last detail, practising new skills and learning on the spot.
Some of our highlights from this involved our photographs being selected to feature on the singers fan pages.
As well as floating through the crowds, we also took turns in experiencing what is is like to be back stage and gaining unique access for the best shots.
Overall it was an incredible experience and one we are looking forward to take part in again in the future!

On Saturday 5th March 2016, Members of Orasis Photo Club took to the streets to cover the Carnival Treasure Hunt event, organised by CHOICE FM. Needless to say, every single aspect of the event was captured, leaving participants with everlasting memories of the day and the activities involved. Our members also had the opportunity to practise their street photography skills and gain valuable experience throughout the duration of the event.
A big thank you to our amazing media sponsors for the Carnival Photography Competition, CHOICE FM, KLIK FM and HIT FM. Thank you for this incredible opportunity. Our members had an amazing time!
