Canon PhotoMarathon X

In her 10th edition of Canon PhotoMarathon, there were a record number of 2419 participants in the 2012 Canon PhotoMarathon and I was glad to be part of the 2419 particpants! For some readers, what is the Canon PhotoMarathon all about?

The Canon PhotoMarathon is a very fun, interesting and very challenging photography competition. It consists of three segments in which participants are required to create images according to the various themes that will be announced one after another throughout the one-day competition. The Canon PhotoMarathon X started at 9 a.m. and is expected to continue over the next 5 hours, culminating with the announcement of the winners at the end of the day.

The competition, which is in its 10th year, will also feature a Celebrity Challenge. Under this challenge, local celebrities — The Muttons, Jade Seah, Ross, Dawn Yeo and Nat Ho — will compete against each other based on the theme for the afternoon segment of the competition. Canon will be donating S$5,000 to the winning celebrity’s charity of choice.

What are the themes for Canon PhotoMarathon 2012? Here are the themes –

Theme 1 – Wonder

Theme 2 – Harmony

Theme 3 – Pleasure

The themes announced during Canon PhotoMarathon never fail to amaze me. They challenge and push my photography to a new level, especially on the creativity segment, thinking out of the box and beyond my current field and scope of photography. I had a great time shooting together with Ted (and helping each other pose) for Theme 1 and Theme 2, walking around the Gardens By The Bay, Marina Bay Sands, Suntec City, Merlion Park, Clifford Pier, One Fullerton, Marina Bay and Marina Promontory.

How did I do for my 3 themes? Here are my submissions for the 3 themes –

Theme 1 – Wonder

Theme 2 – Harmony

Theme 3 – Pleasure

I confessed that by the time I started Theme 3, I was quite drained out mentally and physically from the past few days fatigue adding up. Therefore, my Theme 3 wasn’t fantastic at all. Do check out and take a look at the award winning entries for Canon PhotoMarathon 2012. They were awesome, very creative and eye catching!

Canon PhotoMarathon is not just about competition, it’s also about fun and enjoying photography with your friends and making new photography friends. I thoroughly enjoyed my third Canon PhotoMarathon and look forward to future Canon PhotoMarathon for more challenging and fun times in this unique and exciting photography competition.
