Athens Photo Marathon 2016

Athens Photo Marathon, the biggest photography contest in Greece, will be held on Sunday 25 September, 2016.

The event constitutes an original cultural initiative, with a competitive character, which seeks to stimulate both involvement in social issues and appreciation for photography.

Contestants using photography as a common language are encouraged to participate in a “photo marathon”, to interact and to express themselves, by recording through their own lens and within six hours, four given subjects inspired by the urban life and its experience. Technical knowledge of the camera is not a prerequisite for participation, but inspiration and desire for creativity are.

Athens Photo Marathon is organised by the Hellenic Centre for Photography, in the framework of the Athens Photo Festival 2016, with the support of Nikon. Athens Photo Festival 2016 is made possible by a donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
