Mensa Photocup

The art of photography is an area where Mensans from over 50 countries with different languages, customs and traditions can converge with a single, visual language! Use your creativity, skills, and technical expertise to produce your entry in the Mensa PhotoCup!
Every year Mensa holds a National PhotoCup competition in each country. The top three winners participate in the International PhotoCup. The final selection is made by an external board of judges comprised of experts in the field.

Active Members' Weekend

Some years Mensa Switzerland organized an Active Members' Weekend (AMW). It shall be located at a nice place, it's free and open to all members. Those who have a function in Mensa Switzerland are especially encouraged to attend and shape Mensa's future, but it is also a perfect opportunity for those who want to learn what Mensa Switzerland is doing and then become an active member after the weekend. Ideas and helping hands are welcome for the future of Mensa Switzerland.
