12×12 creator Morten Rand-Hendriksen is known for creating a certain degree of DRAMA* leading up to the reveal of the photo marathon’s first theme, especially when no one knows what MY ENTRY NUMBER will be paired with. After Rickrolling everyone with NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP*, the end began to look FAR AWAY SO CLOSE* for many participants. But to REJECT* the themes is never an option. “I BET…* your IMPRESS(ION)* of MY OWN REALITY*, as well as your own perceptions will change when you see some of these theme interpretations,” says Rand-Hendriksen, “- a METAMORPHOSIS* of sorts.” The public is encouraged to view the exhibit BEFORE THE STORM* of guests arrive at the 12×12 Raw Talent Exhibit. Attendees will have the ADVANTAGE* of speaking with the many OVERACHIEVERs* who participated in this year’s challenge, including those that photographed their FAVOURITE* photo series.

Join the fun on Saturday October 12th as 60 photographers regroup with nervous anticipation to find out how their images developed. With winners announced and their prints revealed for the first time, you will not want to miss this always highly anticipated one-night event.

About the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon:

12×12 is the first and only not-for-profit annual photo marathon in BC, and one of the rare film-based ones in the world. Beginning at 10am on the day of the photo marathon, and at the top of every hour for the next 12 hours, a theme is randomly drawn and released. With only 1 exposure allowed for each theme, participants have to interpret and capture them in the given sequence. When the clock strikes 10pm, only the completed rolls that are returned on time move on to the final phase. Negatives are then developed and judged, the results of which are showcased at a free public exhibit.
