The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Virtual Photomarathon Sheffield exhibition

Photo topic: My, myself and I. By Jenny Halse

On the weekend of 20-22 March, 125 people took part in the Virtual Photomarathon Sheffield. A fun photography challenge for all ages, giving entrants six topics and asking them to submit one photo on each.

Carrying out Photomarathon Sheffield online meant that, unlike usual, we didn't get to enjoy meeting everyone who took part. We did, however, love to see so many familiar names submit entries, as well as new people taking part for the first time. And we were excited to hear people joined in from beyond the city, in Liverpool, Norfolk and even Saigon.

We always LOVE looking through the entries – this year we had the unusual bonus pleasure of getting to see a lot of cats, dogs, teddies and LEGO collections too. All photos submitted to the event are now on the Photomarathon website.

See the Virtual Photomarathon Sheffield 2020 online exhibition.

Big thanks to everyone who took part, and congratulations to winner Jenny Halse (her photo above is for the topic Me, Myself and I).

And extra special thanks to our partners, the local independent photography heroes Harrison Cameras, for providing tech support and a voucher prize.
