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 6th Phtomarathon.
Photomarathons are popular throughout Europe (and now Cardiff) and
from 10:00am on Saturday 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 at Cardiff's Old Library later
in the summer.

Happy Birthday Techniquest. Cardiff's fantastic science
discovery centre is now 25 years old.
It's come along way since it's humble beginnings in a warehouse on
the site where the Wales Millennium Centre now stands. Still
in Cardiff Bay but now in it's own purpose built complex it is one
of the best hands on science centres in the country.

The Wales Millennium Centre is no stranger to hosting big
productions and have in the past put on musicals such as Les
Miserables, Mary Poppins, Mama Mia and the Sound of Music.
And never ones to miss an opportunity, take a look at how the
brilliant marketing team at the centre announced the Sound of Music
on the streets of Cardiff 2 years ago. I wonder what they'll
come up with this year.
