The second Maui Photo Festival and Workshops is going on right now (August 25-29, 2010) at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa on Kaanapali Beach. Their Thursday Night and Friday Night Sessions are open to public.  I think this is a great event to go, both for locals and visitors alike.

The organizers of this major event were very busy these past few months perfecting their signature Maui event that celebrates the exploding popularity of digital photography by bringing world-class photographers to one of the most photogenic destinations in the world: Maui.  They are doing a marvelous job.

Maui Photo Festival is using various social media networks to share with you the things that are going on in the event.  For Twitter, we are using the hashtag #mauiphotofest and the official Twitterhandle for the event is @mauiphotofest.  Below is a photo from their 2009 event.  You can see how much fun these photographers are having:
