*Although I didn’t manage to participate in year 2014, I got this shirt as a souvenir when I attended a Canon photography seminar! *

I had participated in 5 x Canon PhotoMarathons over the years 2015, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2008. For every year that I participated in, I had a fun time and interesting experience, besides taking part in a photography competition with attractive prizes, I had a fun outing time with fellow photographer friends and catching up with other groups of photographer friends too!

I am looking forward to participate in Canon PhotoMarathon again! This is not just a photography competition, this is also a time for photographers gathering and have a fun time together taking photographs!

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.

10th Canon PhotoMarathon is on 3rd Nov 2012 !

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.

The 10th Canon PhotoMarathon 2012 is going to be special and big! Check out the website for more details on registration and prizes to be won! It’s not just a photography competition, it’s going to be a fun, interactive and enjoyable photography outing too!
