The challenge to 250 creative, stress-resistant and ambitious photographers is back in Berlin on September 22nd 2007 at 12.00 in Podewil. This eight Berliner Fotomarathon will step on digital territory, for the first time just digital photos will be accepted.

As in the past years, under a general theme, 24 ambiguous topics will be given to the participants to test their interpretation skills. The topics should be covered within twelve hours and strictly respect the given chronological order. The winner is not the one who arrives first but the one who takes the best and most consistent series of 24 photos in 12 hours.

The Fotomarathon starts at noon Podewil (Klosterstrasse 68-70, Berlin Mitte) and unfolds along three other stations located through all the city until midnight. The stations are located around the inner Berlin city and can be reached easily either through the public transport or by bicycle.

The Fotomarathon is not only about photographic performance it is also about developing a new point of view in the truest sense of the word. Only one chance is available for each shot: every decision counts. After a careful choice of places for the stations, the Fotomarathon also serves as an unrivaled city tour in Berlin for everyone, even for those who think of themselves as Berlin experts: a 12 hour trip to unchartered territory for Berliners and visitors alike! Registration is underway online at www.fotomarathon.de and the number of participants is limited to 250.
