This is the fifth year that series of International Photo marathons are organized in Reykjavik! Our main objective is to deliver messages and draw the attention of the local population through pictures and photos made during the project. The project coordinators will prepare different topics on which the participants will base their entries. The topics will be mostly related to intercultural understanding, peace & environment.
Participants need to bring their own digital cameras. The main work will involve taking photographs on the given issues. The best pictures will be selected for a final exhibit. The last part of the project will be putting up the exhibition. Volunteers shall be prepared for walking/cycling, flexible time schedule (early morning photo sessions, night photographing).
Apart from working on the photo marathon, volunteers will join the festive atmosphere during some days by handing out hot chocolate in the city centre as a way of fundraising for non-for-profit projects of the Icelandic Red Cross. We will help in the preparation by putting up the chocolate stations, decorating the tables, making the chocolate and taking it to the different stations around the city. At the end, we will assist in taking down the stations and leaving the areas clean. Volunteers will also work with the Salvation Army helping them with fundraising.
Volunteers with artistic skills, such as singing, juggling, playing music are encouraged to apply for this project as they will have the chance to perform during the chocolate hand-out and help to create a nice and friendly atmosphere.
About Reykjavik The population of Iceland's capital Reykjavik is over 200,000 including the metropolitan area, so two thirds of Iceland's inhabitants live here. Reykjavik is often called "the nightlife capital of the north". But there is more to Reykjavík than pubs and clubs. Reykjavík also gathers the most interesting of Icelandic culture. It is an incubator of new ideas and styles which often indicates new global trends. It is an international city with a lively cosmopolitan cultural scene surrounded with beautiful nature.
In December you can see the Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) in Iceland. In the area within 100 km from Reykjavík, there are several spectacular waterfalls, geysers, impressive coastline and the well-known geothermal Blue Lagoon spa to visit.
