Spotters – Press 2019
FOR YOUR INFORMATION March 28 2019 ( First Post )
The organisers of the Kavala AirSea Show are welcoming all those who wish to attend the event either as a spotter, aka enthusiastic fans of events relevant to aviation, professional photographers, members of pertinent associations etc, or a press member.
A world which stands out for its passion (!) for the art of photography, filming and written speech. It is indeed a generous world which we owe the consistently increasing photo material to. A huge file of photos which create a holistic view of the event thereby contributing to the international awards that we have been awarded and the constant promotion of the show via the awards gained by the very photographers in several contests and exhibitions.
The aforementioned activity is determined, supported and controlled by the administration of Kavala Air/Sea Show Media Operation (KASS Media Ops), with a view to providing as many opportunities as possible to the people of a special world of high requirements and needs.

For sixth time, the beautiful port of Kavala hosted its annual Air & Sea Show. Every summer, guests flock to the northern Greek city to see some action over the city’s port. This is a very photogenic airshow due to the old city of Kavala, which creates an amazing background & the fact that the display is timed for ” golden hour” the best light of the day.
The Airshow Organization have selected specific areas around the town with the best possible view to the action scene so as to provide the spotter-press fraternity with the required opportunities for photographing the display without obstruction (see map).
All SP 1, SP 2, SP 3, SP 4 and SP 5 areas are reserved for this purpose (see the following Photo)
