The start of Stockholm Fotomaraton

This year’s start is from Stockholm Stadsmuseum, Ryssgården (see map link).

Check-in takes place at 10 o’clock, and the start is at 12 o’clock. Be in time!

Check points

Every four hours, you should pass a checkpoint, where you will receive your next theme card. On the theme map, you will find four new themes for the coming hours and the location of the next checkpoint. You must show up at each station within its opening hours.

The opening hours of the stations are as follows:

  • Start – 12.00
  • Check point 2 – 15.00-17.00
  • Check point 3 – 19.00-21.00 (this is also the finish line for the 8-hour class)
  • Check point 4 – 23.00-01.00
  • Check point 5 – 03.00-05.00
  • Check point 6 – 07.00-09.00
  • Finish – 11.00-13.00

Finish line

It’s a secret until you get your last theme map.

You will submit your pictures to our staff on-site by the finish line.It is VERY IMPORTANT that your memory card only contains 8/24 pictures in JPEG format. Not more or less.

If you shoot film, you will submit your exposed roll in an envelope that you will receive at the finish line.

If you participate with your phone, you will submit your photos by a web portal. More info at the finish.

Do not forget to transfer your tickets!

Have you bought tickets for someone else or maybe sold your ticket? Do not forget to transfer the ticket to that person.

To transfer the ticket is a fast thing and is needed so that the person get the correct info emails.

Do not wait – follow these instructions.

Additional memory card

A good tip is to bring an additional memory card to take pictures from your participation that are not the competing pictures. There will be times when you want to take a picture of something not in the competition. If you compete in the mobile class – make sure you have room for your pictures.
