The Panoramio Hungarian community meets in Ajka

A total of 94 photographers have won during the last 2 years the Panoramio Geotagged Photo Contest, and this was the perfect excuse to meet up around an exhibition of those great photos.

The event happened during the 7th and 8th of August in the gallery of Ajka (Hungary) thanks to the organization of Imre Lakat. Gábor Hauberger (NightHunter), our beloved Hungarian moderator gave a welcome speech in the opening ceremony.

On the first day, we made a trip to Magyarpolány, a small village close to Ajka where we visited the church and Calvary Hill. On the evening, we had a marvelous dinner on the Somló Hill, which is the smallest, but famous wine region of Hungary. On the second day, we visited a wonderful natural formation, the Karst of Úrkút.

In total, more than 100 participants attended the event, and we all enjoyed the meeting. Thanks Imre for the great organization, and we hope it is not going to be long until we can meet again.
