This is the tenth year -since 2008- that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons, while we started organising camps open for teenagers in the year 2010. Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an intense Photography related camp. SEEDS coordinators work with the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style. When the workshop ends, we select some of our best pictures from the stay and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition locally. While learning about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by working for the City of Reykjavik. One of our objectives is to deliver messages and draw the attention to the locals through pictures made in the camp. Participants should arrive ready to shoot and should bring with them their own digital cameras, lenses and laptops if possible. They should be prepared for walking and visually exploring the city streets and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions. Please note this project is more of a learning/sharing camp and not a regular work camp; we may be able to organize some outdoor voluntary service but it depends on our partners and weather conditions. This teenage projects are open for participants in the age range 16 to 20 years old and during their stay SEEDS organises a programme that combines learning, sharing, getting to know Iceland, its culture, having fun, as exploring the capital city and some of the most stunning nature attractions in the Golden Circle and the South Shore excursions, which will be part of the camp.
SEEDS participants will stay in an equipped house, in a beautiful setting inside the Botanical Gardens of Reykjavík, which are located about 4 Kilometres from the centre of the city. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in an sleeping bag accommodation. Participants shall bring their own sleeping bag. Participants from other projects will also stay in the house. Participants will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food and recipes from your home country for the international evening.
Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources – geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world’s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides. Reykjavík is an International city with a lively Cosmopolitan cultural scene surrounded with beautiful nature.
Participation fee EUR 550 (Euros), which needs to be transferred to SEEDS the latest one month before the camp starts to confirm the placement of the participants.. The fee includes transportation from the meeting point to the camp and back (on the first and last day), as the Golden Circle and South Shore excursions (1 full day-trip each), we will visit spectacular waterfalls, geysers, impressive coastline, a volcano crater, the National Park of Thingvellir and much more. Meeting time will be 17:00 (5:00 pm) in the afternoon of August 31 at the BSÍ bus station, in Reykjavik. Participants that cannot arrive on time (later flights) will be sent information on how to reach the camp. Additional trips (eg. Snaefellsnes, Hot River hike, etc) can be arranged at discount fares in case there is additional free time after voluntary service or the workshops. Weather may be cold or rainy, so we recommend to bring warm and/or waterproof clothes as part of the project takes place outside.
