Another bit of good news this week was that I made the ballot for Photo 24 2016 in London. This will be my 3rd Photo 24, and my friend Christine also made the cut for the 3rd time as well.
This is a 24 hour photo marathon from midday Friday 17th to midday Saturday 8th June 2016 (normally the longest day). During the 24 hours you are free to do as much or as little as you want, dip in dip out. This free event is hosted by Absolute Photo and Nikon School and is great. There are several meet ups organised with themed competitions and the overall winner of the best submitted photo taken during the 24 hours will win a Nikon D500, a very nice prize.
There are also a few extra special organised activities that you can pay for. In the past these have included mini courses or entrance to special places. This year there will be five:
- Sunset at the Shard
- Sunset at the Millenium Wheel
- Night open top bus tour (2am – 4am)
- Saturday morning boat ride to Greenwich
- After hours access to Tower Bridge
Christine and I are signing up for the boat trip and the tower bridge experience.
