12×12 Photo Marathon

December is shaping up to be a fantastic month for photography, despite the usually crummy weather we get in Vancouver. On December 12th, the first annual Vancouver 12×12 Photo Marathon will take place.


What is it? It’s a twelve hour event where participants will check in, receive a roll of 35mm film and then each hour, will be giving a theme of which to shoot one exposure. At the end of the event, the participants will hand in their film, with twelve exposures on it – one for each hourly theme. The cost is only $12 which covers the cost of the film and processing.

I’m on the event organizing committee and am really looking forward to seeing this event unfold as I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. Be sure to get the details and sign up on the 12×12 site as space is limited. All you need is a working 35mm film camera (any kind) and $12 to participate – you don’t need to be a pro photographer!
