Photography Walking Club: #AVwalkingphotos

Since February, 2021 we’ve been running the Photography Walking Club – encouraging our communities to focus on a fun goal, whilst continuing to be healthy and active during the pandemic.

The club has been launched off the back of our successful winter 2020 campaign, 30 Minutes for 30 Days, where participants had to walk for half-an-hour, five days a week.

Already we’re experiencing great levels of participation, with some stunning photos of nature coming through from our amateur photographers. So how does it work?

One of the many photos entered into the photo club: this one is from Bob Pedley of a beautiful Berkshire sunset.

Essentially, the club piggybacks people’s regular, weekly walks by encouraging them to take photos with their mobile phones, too.

The photos can be of anything: wildlife, plants, a beautiful panorama, a fun selfie, the weather – it’s up to them.

Then on the following Monday, we put a post up on our Facebook account (Apna Virsa) asking them to upload their photos. They can enter a maximum of five per week.

A collage of images taken by participants during Week 2 of the club: as you can see, the standard is particularly high.

The best ones are going into two separate online votes, with a final vote concluding the winner and runner up.

So if you haven’t already, why not start snapping on your regular walks and send us your best – you could win a prize come late April/early May time.
