AvatarDay 2012

The date is out for AvatarDay 2012 in Bern, when you can get a free portrait taken by Barbara Hess.

Barbara Hess took it upon herself a few years ago to insist that the online community in Switzerland improve their online profile pictures. In order to make this possible, the AvatarDay was born, during which Barbara (and in subsequent years other photographers across Switzerland) open their studio doors for the day and invite you to come and have a free new portrait photo taken.

The next event – which serves also as an opportunity to network and meet those people who you may only have ever met “virtually” on Twitter – takes place in Bern on 24th November 2012. You can see some examples of photos from previous years in this Flickr group, and sign up to let Barbara know that you’re attending here.
