Event Summary

The Czech Republic’s photography community was palpable at our prior events, so it was only natural to bring the show to their doorstep. At BIO OKO, our host venue, the atmosphere was electric, with the sun shining bright and the beer flowing freely. As the community gathered, the energy of the city of Prague took over, infusing our event with its unique charm.

Event Theme

HERE TO THERE

This theme came from the phrase What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. Oftentimes, presenters shared their history and an overview of their achievements. It was a natural way to present and important. In Prague, we flipped the script and wanted to learn how presenters were forging ahead. Forward-focused presentations were given, revealing what they were working towards and how they planned to get there.

Line-Up

We offer two formats for presenters: 45-minute keynote presentation and 10-minute WUNX presentations.

    Embracing the idea that “A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there,” this theme challenges our presenters to interpret how comfort often leads to complacency, stifling creativity and ambition. Throughout the event, presenters will share their unique takes on breaking free from routine, embracing uncertainty, and pursuing transformative change.
