Shrewsbury Photo Marathon


The Shrewsbury Photo Marathon Competition is a photograph competition with a twist: Over 6 hours you must take 12 pictures on 12 given topics. 

On the Day

​At 10 am on the day of the Shrewsbury Photo Marathon, each entrant will have their camera, mobile phone photos and memory card checked and verified and then will be issued with the set of 12 topics. They have the next six hours to shoot one image per topic. 

Each entrant must personally collect the set of topics from Hopefully Made on Milk Street and have their entry card stamped to prove attendance. Entrants must have signed up in advance here.

The organisers at Hopefully Made will then receive the completed entries – via direct download from your memory card – from 2pm until 4pm.

​The topics are kept secret until revealed at the start of the event. They will offer plenty of room for interpretation and creativity.

​After the event

​After the Shrewsbury Photo Marathon, all the images are collated and printed before our judges meet to decide the winners. The prizes will be announced in the run-up to the event.

All the photos will then go on show in a free public exhibition (location and date to be confirmed).
