European month of photography

In addition to posing a photographic challenge, the Fotomarathon invites you to see the city with a different perspective. You can create your own photo sets in the city: passers by can be your models, your friends can be your assistants and the city can be your own 3D background. We work hard to find off-the-beaten-path or otherwise interesting locations to discover. We tell you a bit more in each theme sheet, where you find your topics, with interesting facts and a bit of history. This makes the 9 hour journey a trip to the unknown not only for visitors and Berliners alike.

You can participate in the 2020 Fotomarathon as follows:

  • Digital
  • Analogue
  • Mobile

This year the Fotomarathon in Berlin takes place on Saturday, October 24th at 10.00 hours . The starting point will be announced via Email to all registered participants.

Who can participate?

Everyone with enthusiasm and a digital (or analogue) 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.
