Photographs during the events

The Conferment Committee takes care of the official photographing during all the events of the Ceremony. After the Conferment, guests will be informed when the photos and the Conferment Book can be picked up or purchased. The official photos of the Conferment will be used in the Conferment Book as well as in connection with this year’s and future Conferments’ communications.

To be able to preserve the ceremonial spirit of the Conferment Act, taking photographs is left only for the professional photographers. We hope that all promovendi inform their guests about this rule. During dinners and other events photographing is allowed; however, we hope that all participants are respect the atmosphere and other people nearby, especialle during the more formal dinners.

Portraits at the Ball and on the day of the Conferment Act

In connection with the Ball, participants have the opportunity be photographed either alone, with a companion or a friend. For those promovendi participating only the Conferment Act, the studio is open on Friday after the Act. The photoshoot is organised by Ylioppilaskamerat. Photographer will take a few full-body photos and a few upper-body photos. Afterwards, you can choose your favourite image, which will then be edited and finalized and shipped to you by mail. By default, these will be colour photos but you can also get them in black-and-white.

Participants will be able to choose their favourite photos in approximately two weeks’ time and the pictures will be ready in about a month from this. The first picture costs 65 euros, including photoshoot, editing and the final picture. The price for additional pictures is 7–15 euros depending on the size and paper quality. Invoicing is done afterwards.

The studio is open on Friday from 15.30 to 18 at Lehtisali (University Main Building) as well as on the night of the Ball. A time can be reserved via e-mail:
