PhotoMarathon Melbourne 2017
Sat. 29 April 2017, 9:30 am – 7:00 pm AEST
PhotoMarathon returns to Melbourne for another year! A photography competition with a difference - you have 9 hours to take 9 pictures of 9 topics.
It's not your physical condition that will get you through this marathon, but instead your sense of improvisation, fun and creativity (i.e. no training required!).
Throughout the day, you'll be given 9 topics to take photos of. You'll collect them in person from the PM hubs, and they'll be provided in batches of 3. Pretty much anything goes in terms of the topics, they may be a mixture of existential ideas, simple forms, or basic objects. It's an essential part of the competition that the photos are taken in the exact order the topics are provided. Once you've got your 9 images, you're ready to submit your portfolio back at HQ!
Following the judging period, we'll be holding a free public exhibition, which will kick off with an opening night with the prize giving (Friday May 12). Every entrant's portfolio will be exhibited, no matter of age, ability, experience or technical equipment. The exhibition will highlight this wonderful city’s diversity and show off its creative inhabitants.
It's going to be quite a collection!
