Project Description

The Palestine photo-marathon is a one-day competition for amateurs and professionals with a love for photography and a vivid imagination.

“Great photos are born in the heart not in the head,” says Samer Hamed winner of the 24 hour event 2015.

Participants in the photo-marathon compete to visually interpret a number of predetermined themes within a limited period of time – either 6 or12 hours. They can participate in the kids or Family/group Marathon, and the competition will be held in the following Palestinian cities: Ramallah, Jerusalem, Nablus, Hebron, Bethlehem and Gaza City.

The Photo marathon 2016 is the fifth consecutive event and with six Palestinian cities represented.
The Marathon this year will take place on the 7th of May, and you can sign up until the 25th of April.

The winners of each category will be announced during a ceremony at the Danish House in Palestine.
