Canon PhotoMarathon is not a sports event and no, you do not have to run around with a camera taking photos. Itâ€™s a photo competition for all photography enthusiasts.
Canon PhotoMarathon Malaysia 2011 is the region’s largest photo competition and it returns to Asia with more attractive prizes to be won.
This year would be my second time participating in this event however, due to fatherly duty; I had to forgo this yearâ€™s event.
My first Canon PhotoMarathon experience was back in 2010 and it took place in Penang. The event managed to draw more than a thousand over participants from all around the world be it Canon users and non-Canon users.
The competition requires all participants to go around KL city to shoot photos according to the selected themes. There will be 3 themes and it will only be revealed during the competition day.
This yearâ€™s Canon PhotoMarathon already has more than a thousand online-registered participants and many more walk-in participants are queuing up to register since 8.00 am this morning.
Participants will stand a chance to win twelve unforgettable expense-paid tickets to Tasmania, Australia and RM10,000 in cash plus plenty more cool prizes to be won.
If youâ€™re wondering what is this Canon PhotoMarathon all about, I suggest to visit their official website for more information of the contest.
Iâ€™m surely gonna missed this yearâ€™s event. Perhaps next year then :P
Although I did not stay on for the PhotoMarathon. That did not stop me from getting my hands on this beautiful *slurp*
