Can I enter with a digital camera?
Yes. PhotoMarathon is a fully digital event.
Can I use my film camera?
Unfortunately not, we're sticking with digital only.
Can I use my camera phone?
Not for this time but it's something that we'll certainly consider for future editions depending on feedback.
Do I need to bring my own memory card?
Yes, you will need to bring your own memory card. It will need to be completely blank at the beginning of the PhotoMarathon, and our team will check this before you start. We will accept standard SD cards. If yours isn't a typical SD type please bring a USB cable for us to download your images at the end of the day.
Can I use multiple cameras?
No, we accept one camera only. Feel free to use different lens, filters etc though. No drones are accepted this time, sorry.
Can I use in-camera art filters?
If it's a filter you're applying prior to taking the photo, we will accept it, but we want to avoid post-processing of any kind. Multiple exposure is allowed.
Can I enter with a friend or in a group?
Absolutely! This is an opportunity for photographers to work together, as it often helps to get the creative inspiration flowing. If you're working in a team, and submitting one portfolio between you, you do need all the images on one memory card. Use one camera, submit one card.
How do I register a team?
If you want to compete in a team, you can either use your registration as a single competitor (better send us an e-mail using your e-mail for Photomarathon registration) and "surprise us" during the registration time, or if you are aware earlier that you will be competing in a team write your team first or last names during the registration. One mail for all, guys.
Where is HQ for the event day?
We will be expecting you in Sredets centre of culture (Krakra str. 2)
How do I submit my photos?
At the end of the marathon you have to go back to the initial meeting point for the photomarathon and we will transfer the images to our computers. After that you can retrieve your SD cards.
