UoB Photomarathon 2017

8 July 2017, 10.00 AM - 8 July 2017, 3.00 PM

Beacon House, Queens Road, Bristol, BS8 1QU

After the huge success of the 2016 Photomarathon and exhibition, we are running the event again this year and hoping for it to be bigger and better!!

WHAT IS A PHOTOMARATHON?

A Photomarathon is a photography competition with a bit of a challenge: you have to take 10 photos of 10 themes in the correct order over a 5 hour period. The dilemma is if you reach theme 6 and you see something that would capture theme 2, do you delete the themes that you’ve already taken and start again from theme 2, or ignore it and carry on…
 
Only digital images are allowed, either using a digitial camera or a camera phone. You just need to be able to get the photos to me at the end of the day, either by removing your memory card, or transferring them via cable!!
 

WHEN

Saturday 8th July, starting 10am (registration from 9.30am), finishing around 3.00pm.
 

COST

Entry is £7.50! Please sign up via the online shop

SPECIFICATIONS

We will give you 10 themes to complete over 5 hours. At the finish line there will be UoB people to download your images (no editing allowed) and of course time to have a drink with you new friends and share your experiences... We will then process and print your images ready for exhibition!!
 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

  • A digital camera of any type. 
  • Digital Cameras will need to start off with a blank memory card, make sure all those important pics are saved at home!
  • Bring along an extra camera/card if you want to take more than Photomarathon photos on the day.
  • A cable (if required) to transfer the images to a laptop on the day.
  • Don't forget to fully charge your batteries!!
  • Suitable clothing for British Summer weather!! 

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

Lots of books - Mifsuds
2 x tickets to any show - The Wardrobe Theatre
 
And more prizes coming soon, I'll update the list as they come in.

EXHIBITION

After the Photomarathon, all the images will be collated and printed, before a panel of judges meet to decide the winners. All the photos – yes, all of them – then go on show in a free public exhibition. It’s quite a collection. The exhibition will be held August in Wills Memorial building - click here for more information.
