Photomarathon exhibition to open in Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery

3 November 2017

The entries from the Sheffield Photomarathon competition will be on display in the Millennium gallery tomorrow.

The exhibition will be located on the ground floor foyer of the millennium gallery, covering an entire wall, so that passing visitors can take a look at Sheffield through different photographer’s eyes.

Photomarathon, which was organised by Our Favourite Places, is a photography competition that challenges local photographers to take six photos based on six different topics, within six hours.

The competition takes place in many different cities around the world, but it is the second time the competition has been run in Sheffield.

Around 250 photographers entered in the competition that took place on Saturday 7th October.

The judges, who are all Sheffield-based photographers, chose winners and runner-ups for each of the six different categories.

The winners and the runners-up from each category will have their work on display, as well as at least one photograph from everyone who took part.

The categories were very broad in order to encourage a variety of responses, and encourage the photographer to think outside of the box.

Each category was judged based on creativity, curiosity, spontaneity and originality, rather than technical expertise.

Instagram will load in the frontend.

The overall winner of the competition will win a DSL camera, and the winner from each topic will win a compact camera.

The exhibition will be on display in the Millennium gallery from Saturday 4th November until Saturday 28th January.
