2014 Canon Photomarathon Asia

Asia’s biggest photography contest – the 2014 Canon Photomarathon Asia – made its yearly debut in Hanoi, Vietnam on September 27, 2014. The event, essentially a photography competition, was initiated in 2003 by Canon Singapore and is a one-day day event meant to create an abiding interest and passion for all things photography. This year the contest spans over 7 different countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, Thailand and Cambodia) and ends on November 29, 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand.

On the actual day of the contest, each participant is given three separate themes at different times to base their photographs on. They are given three hours to complete each thematic work and must return to the contest location with their pictures, and download them onto the server before getting their next assignment.

The 2014 Vietnam edition of the competition aimed to highlight the cultural and natural attractions of Vietnam. About 10,000 contestants participated in the event, making it a grand success. The list of jury members featured three internationally famous photographers, including Maika Elan, a famous Vietnamese photography artist.
