On Sunday, March 25, 2012 Fotomission and Tropicolor hosted at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden the 8th South Beach Photomarathon, an exciting event that was open to all those who enjoy photography. Participants were assigned six topics to photograph on South Beach over a period of five hours. The topics, Abundance, Scarcity, In, Out, Pattern, and Texture, were kept secret until the event day and were purposefully vague to give the contestants plenty of room for self expression.

The best photos from each topic were selected, and from those the first, second and third place winners were awarded cash prizes as well as plexi mounted prints of their images. The winners were exhibited at Tropicolor's gallery during the month of May and and are permanently exhibited on this site along with all the contestants' images.

This year our panel of judges selected the finalists, and the participants voted for the winners. The judges' dicision is final and irrevocable.


Luis Arturo Mora - First Place - Out
Jacqueline Reyna - Second Place - Texture
Lenette Holbrook - Third Place - In
Alejandro Itkin - Honorable Mention - Abundance
Paula Perez Duque - Honorable Mention - Pattern
Rob Polishook - Honorable Mention - Scarcity

Here are some tips from the Miami New Times on how to win and a short
YouTube video about the event.

We thank all the participants, our judges and sponsors for making this a great event as usual!
