08 May 2012


UKA has teamed up with Blipfoto, the online photography community, to give an athletics fan the chance to become an accredited photographer at the Aviva 2012 Trials in June.

We want to capture the drama of Olympic selection in a new and creative way, so one lucky Blipper will win a money-can't-buy opportunity to be there at Birmingham's Alexander Stadium, as over 750 of Britain’s best athletes go head-to-head for a place on the British team this summer.

Interested? We're looking for action shots that reflect British athlete's dedication their sport - your shots must depict passion, desire and the sheer determination to succeed.

But it's not just athletes that can have these attributes. It could be the passion to win captured in another sport; it could be the determination of your child as they take their first steps; it might even be something completely different that you have dedicated your time to succeeding in. What it must do is capture movement as well as determination...

In short, we want pictures that:

  • Capture a sense of movement

  • Depict action

  • Show a sense of determination to succeed


If you're a budding photographer with an out-of-the-box approach, this competition is perfect for you.

To enter, visit Blipfoto.com and sign up for free (it takes no longer than 30 seconds). Then click on the “Groups” page, and upload your image into the “UK Athletics” group.

The competition runs from 30 April to 25 May. Shortlisted finalists will be announced on Monday 4 June and the winner will be voted for by members of the Blipfoto community.

The winner will be announced Monday 11 June and will receive an accreditation pass to the Aviva 2012 Trials on Friday 22 June and UK mainland travel.
