Berlin-based photo sharing app, EyeEm is teaming up with Canon and Imaging Mind to present Photo Hack Day 4 in Berlin on 28 and 29 November.
Following registration and demo sessions, the hacking proper will start at midday on Saturday and continue straight through the night.
The event is a 24-hour coding marathon that aims to bring together developers, designers and creatives from all over Europe to learn, connect and create new projects that will shape the way we take and see photos.
Registration for the event has opened today and places are limited. There are 150 tickets available, 50 in each of three categories: Developer; Designer; Maker, Visual Artist, Universal Talent.
If you need a little inspiration, projects developed at the third annual Photo Hack Day in 2013 include Snapcat, a selfie app for cats; Tourist Eraser, an app that removes tourists from photos; best photo location, which analyzes impact and social graph to suggest the best place and time to take a photo of a landmark; physical filters, which uses lenses and hardware to reproduce popular digital photo filters.
“We’ve been organizing Photo Hack Days since the very early days of EyeEm” says Ramzi Rizk, co-founder and CTO of EyeEm. “They’re an excellent way to connect with like-minded creatives and challenge yourself to create a working prototype in an extremely short time. It’s amazing to see what’s possible in just 24 hours.”
Photo Hack Day 4 will be taking place at Colonia Nova, a 500sqm creative studio with a rooftop terrace in Neukölln. Entertainment and free food and drinks will be provided throughout the weekend and €10,000 worth of prizes will be presented to the teams with the winning ideas.
