Open Judging Results

One of the biggest challenges in photography is capturing movement. Whether that’s freezing the action unfolding in front of you with fast shutter speeds or flash or creating an implied sense of movement with long exposures or camera panning. Whichever technique you choose to use, there are a whole host of potential subjects on offer. We’d like to see your interpretation of movement, whether it’s people on the go, sports or trains, planes and automobiles.
