Go4word was very excited to be part of the Cameraland “Be Inspired” event that was recently hosted in the Mother City of Cape Town, South Africa. The Cameraland “Be Inspired” event is centered around capturing the thoughts of Cape Town’s creative elite. The event features a gathering of both professional and amateur photographers who shared images, opinions and experiences of how copyright affects the photographic industry at large.
Cameraland hosted some of Cape Town’s professional and up-and-coming photographers for a couch conversation on ‘copyright’ at their monthly April 30th ‘Be Inspired’ evening on their rooftop terrace.
Guest speaker for the evening was copyright guru, Deryck van Steenderen, who was joined on the couch by photographers Angie Lazaro, Wikus De Wet, Inge Prins and Sipho Mpongo. Deryck gave a brief overview on copyright law in South Africa and highlighted several points artists need to be aware of when copyrighting their work. This presentation, along with the four photographer’s personal experiences and issues with copyright made for insightful conversation.
The event was a great success and go4word looks forward to being part of more of Cameraland’s events in the not so distant future.
