What Are The Rules?

The Edmonds Photomarathon will begin at 10:00am on Saturday, June 12, 2021.  A list of 6 topics, or themes will be announced at an online ZOOM videoconference.  Sign in info will be announced the night before.  They will also be posted on our Facebook Page and on our website, emondsphotomarathon.com.

  • To participate, you must register and pay the fee of $25.
  • Participants will have 6 hours, until 4:00pm, to capture and email photos to the address provided to Registrants only. Participants may only submit one photo for each topic, but are not required to submit photos for all 6 themes. There will be one winner for each theme, and one “Best of Show” winner overall.
  • All photos must be taken on the day of the event (be sure sure your digital calendar is turned on to the right date!). Photos are not limited to the Edmonds area. The world is your canvas!
  • You may shoot photos in color or black & white, or use filters etc, BEFORE you shoot, but no photo apps or tools (Photoshop, Instagram, etc) may be used on photos afterward. Photos may be cropped.
  • Photos should be labeled by topic, so it is clear which theme you are interpreting. As long as they are clearly labeled, you may submit all of your photos in one email, or submit separate emails for each theme. Remember though, only one photo per theme. Be sure you have permission before taking photos of people, especially when photographing children.
  • Participant gives permission to the Rotary Club of Edmonds to use the photo images on our website or for publicity purposes, including public exhibition of entries.
  • Submit only one photo per theme.  You are not required to submit for every topic.
  • Be sure you have permission before taking photos of specific people, especially when photographing children.
  • Entrant gives permission to the Rotary Club of Edmonds to use the photo images on our website or for publicity purposes, including public exhibition of entries.

We plan to announce winners at an exhibit of all photos submitted. Date to be announced later due to Covid conditions. Proceeds from this event will go to the Rotary Club of Edmonds. Be sure to check out our website for information about our community projects.
