Creative Photography 52

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 all entries to act as a source of inspiration for everyone. At the beginning of the new year 2024, we will award a prize of £50 to that image deemed the best of those made during the year.

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.

Post 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.
