Last Saturday, December 8, 2012, my brother and I participated in our first Photo marathon ever. Sponsored by Canon Philippines. It was a whole day affair, from sun up to sun down, we enjoyed taking photos around Fort Santiago, Intramuros, City of Manila, Philippines.
Canon Marketing Philippines – Imaging Communications Products Division presented the biggest and most-anticipated photo contest in the Philippines today, The Canon Photomarathon 2012. This one-of-a-kind on-the-spot photo contest that challenges the skills and creativity of participants in creating theme-inspired photographs under time pressure. So many photography enthusiasts come from all walks of life and from different age groups.
The timeframe provided for taking photographs and uploading them is 3.5 hours per theme. So there is really plenty of time to roam around Intramuros.
