Photomarathon is Back

What do you get if you take 100s of keen, amateur photographers 12 hours to take 12 pictures on 12 different topics? The answer - Cardiff's 8th Phtomarathon.

Photomarathons are popular throughout Europe (and now Cardiff) and from 10:00am on Saturday 16th June, 400 people will gather at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay for this photography competition with a twist. 

They will be given the topics on which to base their photographs and they must only shoot one image per topic in the exact order in which the topics are listed.  The entrants will then head off all over Cardiff in search of the perfect picture to fit each category.  Improvisation, fun and creativity are all important in order to succeed in the Photomarathon.

Judges will decide the winner and all 4800 images taken on the day will feature in a special exhibition in the summer.

Photomarathon Exhibition

Remember the photomarathon?  That day back in June when hundreds of keen amateur photographers descended on Cardiff to take pictures of some weird and wonderful things.

Ever wondered how they got on?  Well now you can see for yourself as the photographs go on display at the Cardiff Story Museum in the city centre.  Every photograph taken on the day (by my maths that's 4800 photos in total) will be available to view.  That's a lot of photos.

As well as seeing all the great photos (as well as some not so great) the winners of the carious categories will also be announced.

The exhibition runs from 30 July until 26 August.

Say Cheese!
