Canon holds the annual Canon Photo Marathon this November with talented participants from all walks of life. It is always a delight to see photo enthusiasts gather around for the culmination of art and talent. I am just amazed at how the filipinos have the keen eye to capture that perfect shot and moment. When you capture the exceptional and the unusual, then you are ready to go and let that talent put into good use.
In celebrating the discerning eye for art of different Filipinos, Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc. holds the much-anticipated photo marathon in the country – the Canon PhotoMarathon! The competition is coming this 8th of November, 2014 at the High Street of Bonifacio Global City.
The Canon PhotoMarathon is an on-the-spot photography competition designed to raise the participants’ creative caliber by letting them capture photos that follow a theme under time pressure. Now on its ninth year, they are expecting to fill up the streets of Bonifacio Global City (once again) with photography enthusiasts from different walks of life, all contending to take that winning photograph.
