24 Hours in Bristol
So this was fun! 24 Hours in Bristol is a unique Bristol photography competition spread over a single 24 hour period. Only photos taken within this period can be entered and to make it even more challenging, entrants each get allocated a one hour slot from which they have to enter at least one photo.
I love Bristol and all its quirkiness so I jumped on the opportunity to capture the essence of this wonderful city. I was given 22:00 -23:00 (thankfully not the early hours!) but thought I’d grab the chance to enter some additional images so I was out and about just before sunset and again the following morning. After all, Bristol has so many eye-catching sights and I thought it would be fun to find new ways to capture them.
A few weeks later my husband Ben and I went along to the award ceremony. It was fantastic to see all the shortlisted photos and especially the many different perspectives of the city. I was over the moon to receive first and third prize of the hour 22:00-23:00 and another first for 8:00-9:00! Thank you judges of 24 Hours in Bristol and sponsors!
Below are the winning images (King Street Lights, Queen Square at Night and Breakfast with a View) as well some of the others that I took during the 24 hour period. All 2016 shortlisted images are currently on display at the Harbourside Arts Centre.
It’s safe to say I will be back next year!
