Six hours. Six surprise topics. Six prizes. Donâ€™t miss this exciting event open to all ages and areas of expertise who love photography! Bring your professional DSLR or your iPhone! Fotomission and Tropicolor will host the 10th South Beach Photomarathon, an exciting event that is open to all those who enjoy photography.Â Participants will be assigned six topics to photograph on South Beach over a period of six hours. The topics will be kept secret until the event day and are purposefully vague to give the contestants plenty of room for self expression.Â The best photos from each topic will be selected, and from those the first, second and third place winners will be awarded plexi mounted prints of their winning images. The winners will also be exhibited at Tropicolor’s gallery during the month of June and permanently on this site along with all the contestants’ images.Â This event will be completely managed online. You will receive a printable ID badge via email, and on event day the secret topics will be divulged every 2 hours via email, Twitter and Facebook. This should make for a very interesting contest and allow you more time to work on your captures.
This year, they have added an additional topic, Event Photos. You will be able to submit up to 12 images of the event and the participants in action. These too will be judged, awarded and exhibited.Â The final meet-up locations will be announced in the email reminder the day before the event. Read the revised contestÂ rules, itinerary, terms and conditionsÂ before completing your registration.Â Admission isÂ $40.
