“What is it? It’s a twelve hour event where participants will check in, receive a roll of 35mm film and then each hour, will be giving a theme of which to shoot one exposure. At the end of the event, the participants will hand in their film, with twelve exposures on it – one for each hourly theme. The cost is only $12 which covers the cost of the film and processing.” [JohnBiehler.com]

The event is the brainchild of Morten Rand-Hendriksen and came to fruition with the help of Benjamin Luk, Anny Chih, Lesley Stefanski and John Biehler.

At the end of the marathon, which will have a home base at Blenz Coffee in Yaletown (338 Helmcken), photographers will hand in their film for processing. The organizers will then have it developed for judging as well as displaying at the showcase event January 16th, 2010.

Those interested in participating must purchase their spot online in advance.

The 12×12 blog has all the answers such as which cameras you can use and you can follow the event on Twitter @12x12YVR for up-to-date information.

Update: John Biehler has a recap post about the event over on his site. Stay tuned for more information about the gala/viewing party in January.

    Thanks for bringing attention to our event and for lending your keen eye to our superstar judging panel. We’re hoping to make this into a yearly (or maybe even twice yearly) event so your support is of immesurable value.
