Welcome to the fifth edition of STOCKHOLM PHOTOMARATON

The next Saturday, it is time for the Nordic region's largest photo marathon to take place on Stockholm's streets again. Here comes information for you who will participate

Start - Hörnet, Lilla Mejtensgränd / Malmgårdsvägen 18/8 at 12.00

At 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 18, the starting shot of this year's photo marathon will take place and before that you will have downloaded your number tag and your participant card.

You can pick up your participant material on site at the start from 10 o'clock or already on Friday evening during spring Mingle night at Scandinavian Photo. Keep in mind that you need your ticket to get your participation material. You can find the ticket on your profile at

At the start, it will also be possible to buy T-shirts, mingle with other participants and have a nice time at the photo festival which includes both us and the Planket which exhibits at the same time.

Important! Be sure to be on time so you can get your participation material!


During the competition you will pass 6 different stations, one every four hours. Where the stations are, you will find out when you get your theme card. Note that it is at the stations you get your themes and that all stations must be passed during their respective opening hours. One station at a time is open and the opening hours are as follows:

Start - 12:00
Station 1 - 15.00-17.00
Station 2 - 19.00-21.00 
Station 3 - 23.00-01.00 (Half Marble Goal)
Station 4 - 03.00-05.00
Station 5 - 07.00-09.00
Goals - 11.00-13.00

Goal finish - Somewhere in the City

At the finish you will, as a photo, digitally upload your pictures to our target computers. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the memory card contains only 12/24 images in JPEG format. Neither more nor fewer. Most likely, there will be a little queue at the finish. We ask that you take this into account and make sure you arrive on time.

You who photo with an analogue camera will have to leave your film roll in an envelope that you receive at the finish line.

Extra Memory Card

We would like to recommend you to bring an extra memory card to be able to take pictures from the photo marathon that you do not want to compete with. There will definitely be times when you want to take pictures of something that should not be in the competition.


In order for your photo marathon experience to be as good as possible, it is good to be prepared. We have therefore compiled a checklist of tips and tricks with things that can be good to have or to think about. You can find the checklist here


Please remember to go through the rules and conditions on the website before the competition so you know everything. Also, go trough the FAQ to find answers to all your questions. You can also send us an email at

We are seen on Saturday the 18th!

During the event you are to check in at six (6), or if you're going for the 12 hour class three (3), different check points, one every fourth hour. Where these are situated will be written on the theme cards. Note that it is here that the check points will get your next four themes and you have to check in within their opening hours.

When you reach the goal you have participated with a digital camera will have to upload your 12/24 pictures to our computers. It is important that your memory card only has 12/24 JPEG pictures on it.

You who have participated with an analogue camera will leave your movie in a bag that you will be given at the end.
