This year's brand new format smartphone-only competition will run from Saturday 30th September - Sunday 1st October 2017.

All entry images must be taken in the 24 hours from 1200 midday on Saturday to 1200 midday on Sunday.  

Hundreds of Bristolians and visitors to the city are expected to 'get smart' with their mobiles and take part in this fun, inclusive competition to capture 24 hours in the life of one of Britain's most vibrant and culturally diverse cities.


Now in it's 5th year, it's estimated that the annual '24 Hours in Bristol' competition generates an incredible 10,000 images in a single day - from portraits of Bristolians at work to historic and contemporary architecture, bustling markets, new views of famous city sights, street photography, abstract images, sporting and wildlife shots, panoramics and landscapes. 


What makes '24 Hours in Bristol' unique is that entrants are randomly allocated a specific hour of the 24 hour competition in which they must take at least one entry photo. You could be given a 4pm-5pm teatime slot or conversely 4am-5am in the morning! This allocation of hours gives entrants a fun, added challenge and ensures 24 hour coverage of Bristol at work, rest and play.  

ENTER NOW as spaces will be limited.  


The popular ‘24 Hours in Bristol’ photography competition, which sees 10,000 images of the city taken in a single day, was launched in 2013 and is now a smartphone-only event.
