Rules

  • Take photos in order of the list of topics.
  • All photos must be taken today, in Sheffield, between 10am & 4pm.
  • No editing or adding filters after taking a shot. (You’re fine to use lens filters and play with camera settings before taking a photo).
  • No RAW format photos (don’t worry – unless you’ve changed your camera’s settings to RAW, you’ll be fine).
  • Start with an empty memory card and end with 6 photos – 1 photo per topic. Our software will automatically take the 6 photos from your memory card and sort them into topics according to the order they were taken in.
  • Return to the Winter Garden to submit your photos by 4pm. We'll be there until 5pm in case of queues.

Organisers reserve the right to disqualify any entrant found breaking the rules. We want a fair photomarathon.
