Your Move Brief

This photoblog shows images that capture movement in our everyday lives.  We invite you to respond with your photographs of movement, which use the world around you as inspiration.  Think of this as broadly as possible and be creative with your selection.  The subject matter of your photographs could include leaves falling, reflections of water, people walking, moving vehicles or animals, as well as dance, theatre or sport.  Your photo must capture a movement however big or small, a moment in time before it moves on.

The title offers an insight into the photograph.  The caption describes your ideas about the movement in your image and should include details about the people or event you have photographed.  If your picture includes another persons’ work we encourage you to credit it clearly in the caption. 

The photoblog will not include still portraits, posed pictures or any photographs without movement as the subject matter. Your photos must not include any promotional material, logos, text or advertising.

This is an open photoblog and all the photographs that meet this brief will be made live.  You can submit a series of photos, though an edited selection of these may only be shown.  You will be notified if your photographs do not meet this brief and encouraged to submit other images.  Use the photographs on this site as inspiration and your pictures will continue to inspire others.
