Canon PhotoMarathon will be in November for Singapore

The region's largest photo competition, the Canon PhotoMarathon 2014, is back for the 12th consecutive year. Spanning Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, Thailand and Cambodia, the competition is a great opportunity for companies to organise a team to participate under the Corporate Challenge category.

All companies need are a minimum of three members who have to register together*. Unlike the open and student categories, the corporate team is judged as a team. The scores of the photos submitted by the individual members of the corporate team are combined and the highest score wins the award.

Participants at the Canon PhotoMarathon 2014 compete in creating photographic works with assigned themes under time pressure. In Singapore, the event starts at 7am (registration) at Suntec Convention Centre and ends only at 8pm.

Dates for the full-day event where it has yet to occur are:

  • Indonesia - Medan 11 October
  • Malaysia - Kuala Lumpur 11 October
  • Malaysia - Penang 18 October
  • Indonesia - Yogyakarta 19 October
  • Brunei 19 October (registration not open at the time of writing)
  • Indonesia - Jakarta 25 October
  • Singapore 1 November
  • Bangkok 29 November (registration not open at the time of writing)

Winners stand to win an all-expenses paid photo clinic trip to Japan in January 2015, which has been timed to coincide with the annual Santera Mairi festival.
