Stockholm Fotomaraton

That's how it works

Check in

Before the Stockholm Fotomaraton starts, you as a participant must check in and retrieve your number tag and other participant material that you need during the event.


Starten går i år från Hötorgsterassen. Grupper om max 40 personer kommer få en egen slottid de måste förhålla sig till. 

Nu får du ditt temakort, innehållandes årets första sex  teman. 

At the back of the theme card you will also find the location of the next checkpoint.

Free Photography

Now is the time to start photographing and capture your best pictures of this year's themes. Keep in mind that the tasks must be photographed in the correct order, theme 1 before theme 2 etc.

Digital checkpoint

Efter fyra timmar måste du befinna dig på den digitala checkpointen. Du checkar in genom att skicka in en bild på en specifik plats med ditt temakort i bakgrunden. Du kommer sedan att få sex nya teman.

Final sprint

We are now entering the last few hours of this year's Fotomaraton and it is time to photograph clearly.

Tänk på att alla tävlingsbilder ska vara fotade innan det gått 8 timmar sen du startade.

Finish line

Efter ytterligare fyra timmar är du välkommen in i mål. Du ska nu ha 12 bilder på ditt minneskort, fotade i rätt ordning med tema 1 innan tema 2.

When you upload your photos to one of our computers, you are officially targeted. 


Now you get a diploma, maybe something fun from some sponsor and then it's time to go home and rest.

Print is in progress

When everyone goes to the goal, we start directly with the finishing work. All your pictures go away and printed on contact cards that the jury will then assess.

We ask that you keep your competition photos away from social media until the jury work is complete. If you want to share your pictures you can do it in our dedicated Photo marathon group on facebook.

jury Work

Mid September

Our five jury members sit down and go through all the submitted pictures. They do a solid job and when they are ready they have chosen the winners of the year Stockholm Fotomaraton.

You now get to spread your pictures as you like.


During the autumn we usually arrange a few exhibitions with the best pictures in different selected themes.
Look out for our news not to miss anything!

Award ceremony

Finally, it is time for the big price division. Here we also set out ALL pictures taken during this year's Stockholm Fotomaraton.

Info about when the award ceremony is coming as soon as we have a finished room.
