[: en] You haven't missed that this year you can also run a half marathon (12 hours) and go to goal at midnight?
This year, Stockholm Fotomaraton celebrates its 5 year anniversary and one of the ways we celebrate this is to release on a 12-hour class. The 12-hour class is for everyone of you who always wanted to be part of a photo marathon but think that 24 hours is far too long.
Now there is the possibility of being part of the atmosphere of what can be the most fun photo event of the year without being awake for 24 hours.
But how does it work?
The 12-hour class works in exactly the same way as 24-hour. It is even the same notification.
From the start, we make no difference between 12 and 24 hour participants. Everyone starts in the same place (at the Nytorg Festival this year), gets the same number tags and at start you get the same theme card. It is then a station every four hours where you should check in and pick up the next theme card.
The big difference comes at midnight. You have to have photographed the 12 first theme images before the clock strikes 24. The pictures will then be submitted to the midnight station (which is also the goal for you who will be in for 12 hours). It is open between 23.00-01.00 and here you upload your photos or if you have been with analogue, you leave your film roll. Of course you also get your diploma and any goodie bag here.
When do I have to decide?
As you can see, it is not possible to notify when notifying whether you want to participate in the 24- or 12-hour class. That's because you don't have to decide yet. The truth is actually that you do not have to decide until you are standing there at the midnight station on the photo marathon deck.
Do you feel strong and think this with photo marathon was really fun? Yes, you can choose to continue and run the entire day.
Or you feel completely finished, choose to go to goal at midnight and feel happy and proud to have completed your first half marathon (in photography).
How does the assessment work?
Our jury will pick up winners and top 10 in both the 12 and 24 hour class. The biggest prizes will still be awarded to the winners in the 24 hour class, but there will be some really good prizes for the winners in 12 hours as well.
The theme prices will be picked out and assessed as usual. This means that if you are in the 12-hour class you have the chance to take home the best picture in the first 12 themes. The remaining 12 you have not photographed and it will therefore be difficult to have taken the best pictures in these themes.

[: en] Have you seen that there is a 12 hour Stockholm Photo Marathon this year?
Stockholm Fotomaraton 2018 will be the fifth digital photo marathon in Stockholm and this is something we need to celebrate. One of the ways we are doing is by allowing people to participate the first 12 hours if they want, and by that be in the 12-hour photo marathon.
How does it work?
The 12 hour photo marathon works just like the 24 hour one does. Even the sign up is the same. The only difference is that you have to take all the 12 pictures before midnight and submit them to our workers at the midnight checkpoint (that is also the finish line for the people participating for 12 hours).
When do I have to decide?
If you have not been able to apply to submit to the 12 or the 24 hour marathon. That is because it is the same signup and you do not have to decide if you are going for the 12 or 24 hour finish line before you get there. You can make your decision at the photomarathon day 5 minutes before midnight if you want. Just be sure, if you decide to go for the 12 hour one, take all the 12 hours before midnight.
Basicly it works like this. If you feel like it and love the challenge, you can choose to continue and do the full 24-hour marathon. Or in the unlikely case that you feel tired and do not want to continue, just submit your pictures at the 12-hour finish line and then head to bed.
It's not harder than that!
