Think you’re a pretty good photographer? Got more lenses than you have sense?
Then check out the Canon PhotoMarathon 2016. The event is a full-day photography competition in which you show up, get given a theme or three, and it's up to you to nail the perfect shot in just a few hours. Judging by the quality of the previous years’ entries, it’s not going to be easy, either. The event itself isn't until September 25, but if you're a keen photographer then you'd better sign up sharpish: places are limited. There are two categories to enter: The signup period for the Challenge category is Jul 6-12
($250 donation to St. James’ Settlement to enter), while the easier Open category is Jul 25-Aug 1 ($180 donation).
