My DIY Sports Venue
« Photographers, it's your turn now! »
From May 24 to July 11 2017
Send us your best images showing you, your family, friends and neighbours playing sport somewhere unusual, poetic, fun, fantastic, acrobatic, etc. You decide which!
Everyone is familiar with the images of sport practised at official competition venues, whether at the Olympic Games or World Championships. You see them all the time, everywhere. But what about the sport played elsewhere, near where you live? Gardens, parks, bedrooms, yards, beaches, picnic areas, carparks, bus stops, staircases, railway stations?
What does that look like? What could it look like?
With this competition, The Olympic Museum is seeking to give visibility to personalised kind of sports, gathering thousands of images from the general public all over the world to show that sport is everywhere, all the time, and in all kinds of forms. We can’t wait to see the photos you post and how you vote for other people’s.
Try coming up with a photo that will win you a prize and get your image displayed at The Olympic Museum !
There will be a prize for the photo with the most likes on Instagram and a different prize for the most retweeted photo on Twitter. After posting your photo on Wipplay.com share it on Instagram and Twitter with these two hashtags: #MySportsVenue #Wipplay
