"Celebrations!" features 100 best photography artworks selected from 773 entries submitted by the Society’s members. These colourful images follow the footprints in their travels and offer vivid views of the world in “celebrations”, at home and abroad. The submissions were organized and judged in three categories – "Landscape Symphony", "Melodies of Life" and "The Sound of Silence". Successful entries were chosen in a strictly name-blinded selection process by a jury panel comprised of 3 renowned photographers – Dr. Leo Wong, a recipient of the HK Government Bronze Bauhinia Star for achievement in photographic art; Dr. Wong How Man, explorer and former National Geographic photojournalist, and Carsten Schael, President of the Hong Kong Institute of Professional Photographers.

The exhibition will be held from 12 October to 15 November 2011. It will also feature an art installation by floral designer, Masao Mizukami. A beautiful photography book, published to commemorate the special "Celebrations!" will be launched. The cost of this book will be $560 for members and $700 for non-members.
