During the camp, each photographer will have the opportunity to choose an individual focus on different subjects.

The text camp will provide the opportunity to share participants’ existing works and work on new material in a scope of one week. The camps main topic is News, which will be published in the local newspaper and broadcast on Ezera Skaņas radio station. While the 8mm film arts camp is an opportunity to get to know and practice analogue film media.
