The Photo Fair has been a partner of the event in two years and will now for the second time to host the big awards ceremony, they were also in place at the finish line on Sunday. The awards ceremony takes place on the fair’s last day 13 November.

– Photo Fair is a very important partner for us as we both share the same goal to arouse interest in photography, and help people to get into the photo world. I think it feels like a very fruitful partnership for us, says Emil Gyllenberg at Stockholm photo marathon.

How was the weekend’s Stockholm Marathon photo?
It was absolutely amazing. I’m very happy with everything from the different stations to that we were lucky with the weather. There were also some international participants, including from Holland, England, Brazil and Italy, which was great fun, says Emil.

During 24 hours footed participants a series of 24 images in 24 different themes that organizers decided. A real marathon in other words. In conjunction with the Photo Fair will also be held a photo sprint every three days, which is a smaller version of the photo Stockholm marathon.

Just as Emil says wants both parties to really work to increase interest in photography and this is a very fun way. It is also an honor for us to have the ceremony with us in the fierce environment that Photo Fair is for both experienced photographers, but also for beginners who just became interested in photo, says project manager Hanse Thorslund.
