Welcome to the 2019 Autumm  Half-Fotomarathon Berlin

This year´s autumm mini-fotomarathon takes place on Saturday 23 November 2019 from 12.00 to 18.00 h. Since Fotomarathon fans missed having a 12h event during the summer, we are organising a 6 hour event to give everyone a chance to stay fotomarathon-fit and have fun!

The half-fotomarathon is -as the name suggests- a small and reduced version of the  traditional 12 hour fotomarathon. The pictures taken are downloaded at the end of the event and projected which gives everybody the possibility to talk about each others pictures, explain them, and comment. We invite everybody to exchange ideas and experiences.

In addition to producing high level photography, the Fotomarathon challenges participants to discover the city from a new perspective. Those who want can also use a tripod, passers-by become participants, friends turn into art directors and lighting assistants.

We start at 12.00. The Fotomarathon Team will be there an hour before. The meeting place is FOTOPIONIERE at the Karl Marx Allee 87, 10243 in Friedrichshain. More info on the location at:

Who can participate?

Everyone with enthusiasm and a digital camera with a memory card can take part and accept the challenge in heart and soul. At this point we cannot accept participation with a mobile phone. Whether amateur or professional, alone or in a team, an original Berliner or a visitor –the most important thing is to be creative, relentless and tireless. Participant numbers are limited to 50 participants.
