Where this years finish line will berevealed at the checkpoint together with the last 4 themes. You have to submit your photos within 9 hours from your starting time. The last photo how ever needs to be taken not later than 8 hours after you start.

At the finish line, you who photographed digitally, will upload your photos to our computers. It is very IMPORTANT that the memory card contains only 8 images in JPEG format. Neither more nor less.
