Rules of the game:

Entries either as an individual or as a team, the marathoners have 2 hours to take their photographs to illustrate the theme given. They will have to illustrate two themes.

The two themes:

The first theme is starting at 10am, photos to be submitted by 12 noon.

The second theme is starting at 2pm, photos to be submitted by 4pm.

Mouans-Sartoux provides a rich heritage and many interesting elements within the confines of the town – a large playground to explore with your family and friends as you search for the perfect subjects to best illustrate the requested theme by capturing them with your camera. The photos you submit must be taken within the confines of Mouans-Sartoux on Saturday, June 29th 2019, and must not come from a photo library.

Originality and creativity will be rewarded.

At the end of the 2-hour time limit, each person/team must return to the ‘HQ’ room at the Municipal Police Station to choose and submit the two best photographs in JPEG format, without changing the EXIF metadata.

Equipment required :

Nothing complicated: a camera, comfortable shoes, perhaps one or several friendly creative people also equipped with a camera. Photos taken on a smartphone without an SD card cannot be accepted.

Provide an SD or CFII card that will be uploaded on HQ PCs.
