About Us

Photomarathon UK Limited is a registered not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee. The company was formally established in March 2006 with the sole intention of developing the Photomarathon concept in the UK. The event is run by a team of dedicated volunteers who give freely of their time to help make the event happen.

The event also relies on a number of additional volunteers – friends and entrants – to help run the day and man the exhibition. Our thanks go out to them all.
