Today's the last day to get the registration discount for the big pinhole/alternative fest in Pittsburgh this April. The official title is the f295 Symposium on Lensless, Alternative and Adaptive Photographic Processes. Tomorrow the rate rises to $120, but today you can still register at the "early-bird" discounted rate of $100 (students w/valid ID: $70) by calling:

Carnegie Mellon University
Conferences & Event Services
Phone: 412/268-1125

Registration buys admission to the eight lectures and two round table discussions, held in conjunction with The Center for the Arts in Society at Carnegie Mellon University. They will take place in McConomy Auditorium at the University Center, as part of The Perspectives on the Arts in Society Series, from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. on Friday, April 27th. Oh, you also get a name badge, coffee, tea, water, and snacks during breaks, a program of the day's activities, and access to the sale of books by symposium speakers. And, of course, most importantly, the company of your fellow pinhole and alt-photo enthusiasts.
