!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Photos taken at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. Preferably outside the paid venues, but any picture will be accepted as long as it shows athletes, supporters, atmosphere, the joy, the tears, the opening or closing ceremonies, the great event that is about to conclude in London this summer.

Please don’t forget to add the event and date to you photo, to let everybody know – thanks.

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you! (shouldn’t apply here, but…)
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!
