Stockholm Photomarathon
- 17-18 August 2019 -

Challange your creativity

Fight the clock

Have fun with your camera


About us

Stockholm Fotomaraton challenged Sweden's photographers to take 24 pictures in 24 hours, the first time in 1987.
Since then we have worked hard to create what is now Scandinavias biggest photomarathon. A place where you, who loves photography can challange your self and your creativity along like minded people.
Stockholm Photomarathon takes place in late august and every year, hundreds of photographers gather in Stockholm to take on the challange and have fun together! 

How does a photo marathon work?

Our participants usually describe it as the best day of the year. But how does it work?


Stockholm Fotomaraton means that you should interpret 12/24 themes using your camera in 12/24 hours.

You get 4 themes on each checkpoint and these must be photographed in the correct order (theme 1, before theme 2…).



During the photo march you should pass a checkpoint every four hours.

Here you get 4 new themes and a stamp on your participant card. In addition, it is a perfect place to rest a little, talk to other participants and have a coffee.


time pressure

Stockholm Fotomaraton starts Saturday week 33, at 12.00 and lasts for 24 hours.

All themes must be photographed during this time.

If you are in our 12-hour class, all pictures must be taken within the first 12 hours


Have fun!

Stockholm Fotomaraton challenges you to explore your creativity, at the same time as you experience a lovely late summer night in Stockholm together with hundreds of like-minded people.

Don't forget about the bully to enjoy the moment and have fun!
