The Canon PhotoMarathon is back with a very big bang and great awesome excitement. This is the 10th Canon PhotoMarathon and it promises to be the biggest Canon PhotoMarathon with a X Factor! The Canon PhotoMarathon is not just a time to compete, pushing your photography limits to the test and pushing your photography creativity to your best! The Canon PhotoMarathon is also a great time to learn, interact, enjoy and have fun with your fellow photography friends to go out take photographs together!
My first Canon PhotoMarathon was in 2008, the experience was great and do you remember the themes for Canon PhotoMarathon 2008? Don’t fret! You can find them out here! There was a bit of gap in between my first and second Canon PhotoMarathon in 2011. My Canon PhotoMarathon 2011 was definitely more interesting and fun with more photographer friends going out to take photographs together, have fun and relax!
This year’s Canon PhotoMarathon 2012 is going to be special and unique, there is never-seen-before Celebrity Challenge! Under this challenge, local celebrities will compete against each other based on one of the three themes used in the competition. Canon will be donating S$5,000 to the winning celebrity’s charity of choice.
Canon is also reaching out to the community too during Canon PhotoMarathon 2012. Together with YMCA of Singapore, Canon has invited 30 participants from the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) Tanglin School and APSN Centre for Adults to participate in this year’s event, more than double of last year’s number. This is part of Canon’s Corporate Social Responsibility effort, the Canon Photography Exchange Programme, which leverages Canon’s expertise in digital imaging to encourage the intellectually-disabled to explore their creativity and imagination through photography.
