KAP Contest IKF Dieppe 2022
FYI, below is a message I sent to the IKF Dieppe 2022, regarding the traditional KAP contest.
In spite of my registration to the Kite Aerial Photography contest at the Dieppe 2022 IKF, I chose not to present any image for the reasons I would like to detail below :
• I do not wish to give up my image rights to an "organization" which has absolutely and in no way considered me: I pay my plane ticket from Polynesia, my car rental, my accommodation and my meals.
• I do not wish to participate in a contest organized by an association that has no respect for the participants who contribute to the animation and consequently to the influence of the event, and I do not accept the casualness and the condescending tone with which I was received.... not even welcomed...
• I do not wish to support an organization which, in order to give a good conscience to its event, gives it a "The Planet in the spotlight" theme but which, in its children/youth section, offers animations for children with a kite construction workshop where the only material is....plastic .... this is not acceptable. No to greenwashing.
All this is very regrettable and I wish the best to the participants.
Too bad, kites are nice, friends are here but this post covid edition is one to forget in terms of organisation.
