Virtual Photomarathon Sheffield

Free

Join in the virtual Photomarathon Sheffield this weekend!

In light of the cancellation of this year's Photomarathon Sheffield, we're taking the event online for a free 'virtual' edition, open to anyone.

You have ALL weekend to get creative with your camera or smartphone, while keeping your distance from others. Stay at home for this one! And you don't even need to be in Sheffield – since we know a lot of people often visit from across Yorkshire and beyond to take part.

As always, we’re looking for creativity, curiosity, and spontaneity – it’s about your unique interpretations of the topics more than your technical knowhow.

The photo topics:
1. me, myself and I
2. abundance
3. creature comforts
4. magic moment
5. symmetry
6. from a distance

Submissions close at 11pm on Sunday 22 March.

SUBMIT YOUR PHOTOS HERE

There'll be a £25 Harrison Cameras voucher for the winner.

Rules:
Since we won't see participants in person this time, we can't be so strict on the rules. But if you want to stay true to the spirit of the original challenge:
– take the photos in order
– don't edit them
– only submit photos taken over this weekend.

Other guidelines:
– keep your distance from others! We’re not expecting you to leave your home/garden for this one
– if you’re taking a photo of someone, let them know it’ll appear in an online gallery and make sure they’re okay with that

Please share your behind-the-scenes pics and stories on social media with the hashtag #PhotomarathonSHF.

We'll share the photos on the Photomarathon Sheffield website after the event (the website is currently having difficulties, sorry to anyone who has tried to access it this week).

Happy snapping!
