Don't forget to sign up and take part in Photomarathon
"A Photomarathon is a photograph competition with a twist: Over the course of 12 hours you have to take 12 pictures on 12 given topics. It’s not your physical condition, but your sense of creativity and eye for a good photo that that will get you through the day. There will be prizes for each topic and the judges will be a mix of high profile Retina photographers".
"On the day of the Photomarathon, Saturday 16th July, each entrant will be issued with a disposable camera with only 12 exposures, starting from Gayfield Creative spaces, 11 Gayfield Square, EH1 3NT. At 10am, the first set of 4 topics are announced. Everyone then has the next four hours to shoot one image per topic, in the same order as the topics are listed – this is critical. The topics are kept secret and will offer plenty of room for interpretation and creativity".
