Photomarathon Sheffield 2016

Past Events

A photomarathon is a photography competition unlike any other.

It’s more of a photographic adventure – entrants take a set number of photos on a set of topics in a set number of hours within a set place.

In this case, it’s six photos in six hours inspired by topics that’ll be announced on the day in Sheffield.

Organised by Our Favourite Places, Photomarathon Sheffield is free to enter and open to 150 entrants.

To register, see

Unlike actual marathons, there’s no need to be able to run, or even walk, fast. All you need is any kind of digital camera or smartphone, a keen eye, and a decent amount of curiosity.

Topics will be open to interpretation, and the panel of judges will pick winners based on creativity, spontaneity, inventiveness and humour, rather than technical knowhow.

Every image taken during Photomarathon Sheffield will be shown at an exhibition at Millennium Gallery. So that’ll be an exhibition of 900 photos, from 150 perspectives, showing one day in the life of the city. #PhotomarathonSHF
