APA New York Assistants’ Hexathlon (Sun. 10/28/07)

I’ve been a member of the APA (Advertising Photographers of America, New York Chapter) for many years, and I’ve learned a lot from attending many of their sponsored events. They are having a Hexathlon this Sunday, October 28, 2007. The event is a competition with the following events: “Pack the Right Equipment!” (memory challenge); Reflector Folding Race; Octabank Build & Break-Down Race; “Name this Gear!” (obscure equipment game-show challenge); 12 x 12 Frame Team-building Race; and a Sand Bag Relay.


The event’s main sponsor is Canon, and team sponsors are Adorama, Calumet Photographic, Foto Care, Lensbabies, PDNedu and Set Shop.

Photographers are also welcome to attend, and a “Master’s team” will allow photographers to also compete. The event will be held at Divine Studio, 21 East 4th Street @ Lafayette, Suite 605.
