Re-branding for CV Camera Club

Now the Comox Valley Camera Club Society

The Comox Valley Camera Club Society has re-branded.

The members agreed that although the camera was one of the many tools, the interests and activities of the members were so much greater and thus voted to choose Comox Valley Photographic Society as their new name.

“We have a wonderfully diverse membership—members that are passionate about still photography, others that are equally passionate about videography, and yet others that are skilled at printing, framing and the display of photographic art,” said CVPS president Cecile Turnbull. “We believe that the new name better describes who we are and what we do.”

A competition for a new logo was held amongst the members and Courtenay resident Bruce Johnstone’s design was selected.

The first public display being promoted under the society’s new name is IMAGEFEST 2015—a delightful video showcase of members’ photographic art set to music, along with an exhibit of framed photographs. IMAGEFEST is presented on Saturday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre. Tickets are $15  at the theatre box office. www.sidwilliamstheatre.com
