PHOTOGRAPHY is a hobby that can sustain you with a lifetime of pleasure. But like all hobbies, sometimes you grow tired and find it hard to remain inspired.

Creative Photography 52, in association with Hedon Viewfinders and the Holderness Gazette, aims to be your companion throughout the year offering inspiration so you can exercise those creative muscles.

Each week we will give you a simple subject to spur you into taking photographs with whatever camera or mobile phone you use. We challenge you to make creative images in response to the subject – we are seeking images that are unusual and different.

Every week we’ll choose a selection of photos for publication and there is an ONLINE GALLERY of entries to act as a source of inspiration for everyone. At the beginning of the new year 2024, we will award three prizes one each to the photographers of the images deemed the ‘best‘ of those made during the year.

PRIZES for photographers of the winning images submitted during the year of the Creative Photography 52:

  • 1st Prize Photographer One – Choice of £50 cash or Olight Baton worth nearly £70
  • 2nd Prize Photographer Two – Depending on the winner’s choice £50 or Olight Baton
  • 3rd Prize Photographer Three – Olight Torch Pen worth nearly £13

#viewfinders52 – Refer Friends and win a prize:

Refer a Friend to enter the Creative Photography 52 weekly challenge for the first time, and when they submit their first photo by email and mention your name, you will be eligible to win a special referral prize worth (£50 – £70 presented in the New Year along with the other prizes). The person who refers the most new people will win the prize.

Only photographs taken this year will be accepted. Although you can look at the list of subjects and make plans and take shots in advance. However, you can only enter your photos in the relevant week of the competition. Each weekly challenge will be open for one week only and is open until the new challenge starts.

Email your entries (one per week) to or and please put Creative 52 plus Week number as the subject e.g. Creative 52 Week 1. Remember to include your name, and a title for the image does help.

You can help us promote Creative Photography 52 by posting your entries to the Hedon Viewfinders Facebook Group at: Hedon Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members) and add to your posts (and other social media) using the hashtag #Viewfinders52



  • Don’t go for the obvious shots
  • Think about everything that will be included in the final image
  • “Out-of-the-box” thinking is required.
