South Beach Photomarathon kicks off March 22 at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens

The Carlyle Hotel on Ocean Drive The South Beach Photomarathon kicks off March 22 at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. Shutterbugs and passionate photographers, come and play on South Beach on March 22nd for the 5th annual South Beach Photomarathon! This year the first clue is given out at 11am, and the photographer can use their creativity to photograph related content. A clue will be given out meant to inspire interpretations of the subject. Last year’s clues were: Green, Refreshing, Wild, Style, and Only on South Beach. Each hour a new clue will be given out, and the event runs until 4pm that afternoon. The participants who register before March 13th get a discount on the entrance fee… read more here on the South Beach Photomarathon.

The competition allows amateurs and professionals a chance to show the sandy beaches, colorful characters and eclectic architecture in a different light. ”We want people to gain an interest in the art of photography and develop their creativity through the event. ‘Our main focus is creativity and we want people to have fun,” said Chendo Perez, president of Fotomission, the nonprofit organization that organizes the event.

Anyone from amateurs to professionals is asked to come out for a good cause supporting a portion of the proceeds going to the Waiting Exhibition, which features artistic photos of foster children. Photographers may use any camera, whether digital or film, with participants having the chance to go around South Beaches’ culturally rich atmosphere and use their creativity.  Any type of transportation is allowed, and the day concludes at The Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, where you turn in your film or digital camera card at 4pm. You can share your story (or listen) on how you captured your images at the cocktail party that evening. Last year, 100 people participated in this event, with the top 25 entries featured in the Tropicolor Gallery in MAY. There will also be prizes for the top three contestants.

Expect a diverse crowd, both young & old, with a fantastic day of photography! I thought of finding a video representing the South Beach Photomarathon but decided it was an oxymoron. This blog post was inspired by The Miami Herald here.
