• Photo and Video cameras on MJR
Couple of remarks for those who can’t leave their cameras at home -> We live in digital times and constant fixation of everything is becoming a mania. Isn’t it better just to feel the moment, to look at the things through your own eyes than through the camera? You can’t take the magic away with you in the hundreds of poor quality photographs you can’t capture the essence… Anyway – there are no restrictions in the festival concerning photographing and filming, but there will be more than enough professional photographers in the event, which will be happy to share their best material online. And of course the process of photographing or filming should not disturb other people, especially participants.
We remind you that all the photographs taken during the festival can be without separate permission used by the organisers and other participants as long as they are used for non commercial purpose.

• EcoArt project “Coauthor : Nature”
This year a plener of EcoArt will be held in the festival for the first time. It is for people, who prefer creation to consumption and are not passive observers. The term EcoArt is quite new – it describes a universal creation, which takes it’s roots from traditional, environment friendly Baltic philosophy. The participants of the plener will be selected in a competition and will have to present their ideas to the organizers till 15’th August. The best projects will be presented during the event.
