Dear participants,
it’s 8:00 p.m. and so the 4th Münster Fotomarathon is officially over.

We, the organizing team, once again had a lot of fun with you. Thank you very much for your participation and your positive feedback to this second – Corona-conditioned – online half marathon.

After the Fotomarathon is before the Fotomarathon

We keep our fingers crossed for us and for you that the next Fotomarathon 2022, which is scheduled to start again on the last Saturday in September, i.e. on 24.09.2022 – will then take place again locally in Münster and that we can meet in person.

Part 3: What actually makes a good photo?

 In this post we give you an overview of the subject of image composition.

Most of us have already asked ourselves what makes a good picture. One possible answer is: Let your picture tell a story. Sensational photos offer content, criticize or pull the viewer out of his environment. His gaze is drawn into the picture.

The Olympic idea also carries the Fotomarathon Münster

In a little more than 60 days, on September 25, 2021, the 4th Münster Fotomarathon will also start. Even if our event does not (yet) attract quite as much media attention, for the international participants of the FMMS2021 there is also “Taking part is more important than winning.” as Pierre de Coubertin once put it.
