Description


**BOOKING OPENS 1ST JUNE AT 12PM**

Get set: Photomarathon Sheffield returns this autumn.

WHAT?
Photomarathons have taken place around the world – from Beirut to Berlin, New York to Nairobi, Stockholm to Sydney. Now, Sheffield's joined in the fun.

Photomarathon Sheffield is a photography competition unlike any other. It’s more of a photographic adventure, challenging 300 entrants to take 6 photos on 6 given topics in 6 hours.
No set route. No need to run, or even walk, fast. You just need a digital camera or smartphone, and a keen eye. Winners will be picked for their curiosity, creativity and spontaneity rather than technical knowhow.

It's £10 a place (enter as an individual or team), with 30 free places for under-16s. Entrants get a badge, discounts at a number of independent cafes on the day, and chance to win great prizes (including a DSLR camera for the overall winner – more details coming soon).

After the event, a photo by each entrant will go into an exhibition at Millennium Gallery, showing one day in the life of a city from 300 perspectives.

Alternatively, you can join in for fun for free on social media on the day – you just won't be entered into the competition or exhibition.

WHEN?
Saturday 7 October 2017, 10am-4pm.

RULES

  • All photos must be taken in order, on the day, in Sheffield, between 10am and 4pm.
  • No editing or adding filters after taking a shot. You're fine to use lens filters, tripods and to play with your camera settings before taking a photo. (You won't be disqualified if you use filters, but bear in mind the judges prefer unprocessed photos, and these will look better when printed for the exhibition!)
  • No RAW format photos (don’t worry – unless you’ve changed your camera’s settings to RAW, you’ll be fine).
  • End with 6 photos – 1 photo per topic. We'll take the last 6 photos from your memory card/phone.
  • Return to the Winter Garden to submit your photos by 4pm. We'll be there until 5pm in case of queues.

Photomarathon Sheffield is organised by Our Favourite Places, with lots of support from the fine folk at Harrison Cameras and Museums Sheffield.
