OLYMPUS Medves Photo Marathon
June 1-3, 2018
“Medves” area is one of the lesser-known sceneries in Central Europe, rich in history and full of industrial heritages surrounded by a beautiful landscape. It’s also the home of the “Novohrad-Nógrád” Geopark which is the first of its kind stretching over the border between Hungary and Slovakia. In 2013 we organized here the first photo marathon which exceeded all our expectations. This year we are preparing for the 4th.
The Marathon and its programme have been organized by Szilárd Drexler, documentary filmmaker, and Péter Komka, report photographer both living in and adoring the “Medves” area. For this 48-hour competition we are expecting anybody who loves exploring beautiful landscapes and/or photography. We are going to provide all the support for the participants to take their excellent photos. The most beautiful parts of the area will be guided by the organizers and there is also going to be lots of interesting extra workshops and events.
