Photomarathon 2018

After another very successful event in 2017, Second Look have teamed up with the British Science Association to bring another helping of photo fun.

British Science Association

The starting location this year is Millenniun Square in the heart of Bristol harbourside.

What is a Photomarathon?

Don’t worry, there is no running involved! The event is a day to challenge participants to think creatively, meet new people and have some fun. Each entrant receives a disposable camera and a list of topics to capture. The subjects have to be taken in the order which they are provided. Only one picture may be taken to represent each topic.


All participants will need to arrive at Millennium Square, Bristol BS1 5SZ on June 16th 2018 to collect their cameras between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Cameras need to be returned to Starting point by 5 p.m. If you have not been able to finish all topics, your completed subjects will be shown in the subsequent exhibition, so please still return your camera.

Entry cost is £15.00 which covers the cost of the camera with film, developing and printing images and the exhibition at Hamilton House where ALL entries will be publicly exhibited.
