Photography Competition

One World Leeds
is proud to announce
a photography competition

The theme is “Bringing the World to Leeds”. It therefore could be:

  • A world event happening in Leeds (e.g. Carnival / Tour de France)
  • A Leeds person somewhere in the World (e.g. someone travelling abroad)
  • An image or abstract that illustrates the theme (e.g. Leeds City Hall covered in world flags)
  • An image of world culture in Leeds (e.g. World food being served in Leeds / international football shirts for sale in Leeds market)
  • An image of world people in Leeds (e.g. overseas students arriving in Leeds or immigrants living in Leeds)
  • Your own interpretation of the theme. Don’t be limited by our ideas!

1st prize is £50 cash, and your photo on the front cover of One World Leeds printed magazine

5 runner up prizes of £10 cash, and your photo in One World Leeds magazine

The winning entry will be

  1. Eye catching
  2. Original
  3. Self-explanatory
