The annual Canon PhotoMarathon is back this year, with a record-breaking number of participants expected in the highly-anticipated competition, up from 2,078 in 2011. This year’s event, Canon PhotoMarathon X, is the tenth edition of the largest photo competition in the region and promises participants lots of exciting prizes and a never-seen-before Celebrity Challenge. The event will see the local photography community participating in the Singapore leg on 3 November at Marina Bay Sands. The Canon PhotoMarathon is also held in various countries in Asia including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
“Canon PhotoMarathon X marks our 10th Canon PhotoMarathon in Singapore. The growing local interest in photography is clear; over the past decade, we’ve not only seen an increasing number of participants, but also a significant improvement in the quality of the photos submitted. I believe the Canon PhotoMarathon will continue to be an event that photographers of all levels come together and have lots of fun while learning from one another and sharpening their photography skills,” said Andrew Koh, Senior Director and General Manager of the Consumer Imaging and Information Products Group, Canon Singapore.
