How do I Participate?

The Edmonds Photomarathon will take place on Saturday, June 12. This event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edmonds, is a digital photo contest, but with a twist. All you need to participate is a digital cameral or a smart phone and a little imagination.

To participate, you need to register on our website and pay the registration fee of $25.

TThe competition will start at 10:00am on Saturday June 12, with the announcement of 6 topics, or themes, at an online ZOOM videoconference. The topics will simultaneously be announced on Facebook and on our website at All you need to participate is a digital camera or a smart phone. Participants will have 6 hours to interpret the 6 themes in photos.


Participants may start at any time after the topics have been announced. All entries, - only 1 per topic - must be sent by email to the email address that will be provided to Registrants only, by 4:00pm on the day of competition.

The interpretation of the themes is up to each participant. The object of the competition is to select and capture images that best express the themes announced, in the time allotted. The idea is to be creative, spontaneous, and to have fun.

Photos must be taken on the day of the competition (be sure your camera’s calendar feature is turned on, and that the date is correct). Prizes will be given to the top photographers for each theme. Participants may submit only one photo per theme, but are not required to submit for all six topics to win. All proceeds from this event will go to the Rotary Club of Edmonds.

We plan to have a reception to announce the winners and to display all photos submitted in printed format. A date for that will be announced when current conditions allow the event to happen safely.
