A Photomarathon is a photography competition with a twist: Over the course of 12 hours, you have to take 12 pictures on 12 given topics. It’s not your physical condition, but your imagination and your eye for a good shot that’ll get you through the day. We’ll provide the disposable camera. We’ll give you the 12 topics. All you have to do is bring the creativity. Topics are kept secret and announced throughout the day, while you explore the city looking for your perfect shots.
After the Photomarathon, your 12 images will be collated, printed and displayed in a public exhibition at Ocean Terminal on Saturday 25th July until Sunday 30th July. It’ll be quite a collection! And all the work will be judged by high profile Retina photographers, with a range of prizes for the winners. Then, you can take your work home once the exhibition is complete.
We are a non-profitmaking network of almost 100 clubs and societies from Orkney in the north to Stranraer in the south and all areas in between. The sizes and involvement of each club within the SPF varies widely.
Founded in 1903, our remit is to promote the art and science of photography through interaction. To this end, the SPF Executive Committee organises a diary of events annually, mainly in the form of competitions and workshops, which our Clubs and Members can participate in. The SPF also organises or co-ordinates entries to other events nationally or internationally on behalf of our members. We also maintain a mailing list and supply various services, including our e-newsletter the 'e-flash', and SPF Directory which contains all SPF Clubs and our SPF Judge’s & Lecturer’s list.
Through our SPF membership, comes affiliation of the PAGB. This gives access to the Club network throughout the whole of the UK. Through this affiliation comes other benefits including competitive Insurance arrangements for Camera Clubs, exclusive to the PAGB (Photographic Alliance of Great Britain) network, which you can take advantage of as an affiliated SPF club. In addition to this UK membership; as a member Club of the SPF, you and your members also automatically become members of FIAP (Federation Internationale de l'art Photographique) which is a worldwide organisation, currently based in Luxembourg.
