Step out Sheffield

Despite Corona Virus, some of our walkers have been out with their cameras while others have been delving through their photo albums and sending us their pictures.

Corona Virus Update

The calendar is on hold, but please carry on taking pictures and send them to the address below.

Step Out Sheffield is a completely volunteer led organisation. We don't need a huge amount of money to administrate our walks and support our volunteers, but we do need sufficient money each year to ensure the sustainability of the project. The volunteers who make up the committee that oversees administration of our walks felt that producing a calendar featuring all our walks could not only help generate some income but would also help to raise awareness about Sheffield and about Step Out Sheffield in particular. Furthermore, we know there are many talented photographers amongst our walkers and volunteers and felt that a competition might bring an added interest to their weekly walks.

Entry to the competition is free but is limited to walkers and volunteers registered with Step Out Sheffield. Each walker is limited to 5 photographs and only photographs taken at the location of one of our walks will qualify. Judges and those volunteers involved in organising the competition may not enter photographs. There is no monetary prize for the winner but the people who entered the twelve photographs chosen for the main pages of the calendar will each receive a free calendar as well as a written acknowledgement for themselves as photographer, and for their walk.

Guidelines for entrants and competition rules can all be downloaded below. A competition entry form and photograph permission form can also be downloaded. Anyone needing additional information is welcome to contact the competition organisers via our dedicated competition email: Please note that this facility is provided by volunteers. An immediate response is unlikely but we will do our best to answer your query efficiently.

In order to comply with General Data Protection Rules (GDPR) all photographs entered in this competition which feature identifiable persons must be accompanied by a consent form signed by the person or people in the photograph(s). We cannot accept entries that include images of people age 16 and under.

Please note that the closing date for this year's competition is 31st May 2020. These photographs will be used for the 2021 calendar which will hopefully be available by the end of September this year. In May, as the 2020 competition draws to a close, the plan is to launch a 2021 photo competition for images to go into the 2022 Step Out Sheffield calendar.

We hope this competition brings an added dimension and talking point to your walks and wish you all the very best of luck.
