The nights are drawing in and the weather's getting blustery, so as we mentioned in our last post tomorrow's photohunt will be the last regular photohunt of the year.

However, we're not going out without a bang, so after our usual hunt (meeting at the corn exchange at 6:45pm) we'll be heading for The Maven for drinks. There we can share photos from the hunt, and there will be some special challenges around the bar for a special prize. We'll also be sharing our plans for over the winter.

We'd love to see you there!

The last Flickrs of summer

Have you been to one of our PhotoHunts this year but not shared your successes? Shame on you.

There are different ways you can do it:

1) Got a Flickr account? (Or if not, got five minutes to create one?) Then you can join our Flickr Group and add your best shots. Name the photo with the word you hunted and tag it LeedsPhotoHunt.

2) Tweet it and copy our account in so we can RT the best ones - Our account is @LeedsPhotoHunt

3) Be incredibly lazy and just email us and we'll bung some online for you.

Don't be shy. There's a mix of talent and experience come along to both the monthly hunts and the specials.

As an added incentive, we're looking at organising an exhibition of some of the best photos in Leeds soon, so if you post a few you might be able to add 'Exhibited Photographer' to your CV.

We're risking the weather for one last outdoor hunt this year before the dark nights set in. We'll be starting from the Corn Exchange again at 6:45pm on Monday the 1st of October with an hour of feverish hunting followed by a bit of socialising at a nearby public house.

Wear comfy shoes, bring some form of camera and we'll see you there

Cornucopia -PhotoHunt 6:45pm Monday 3rd September

I don't know about you, but I love exchanging corn. I'll happily exchange it for anything.

Which makes it a wonderful coincidence that this month's PhotoHunt begins from the Corn Exchange!

This may be your last opportunity to get out in the late summer sun (yes, really, the weather does look half decent for Monday) so grab a camera,a phone with a camera on if you're one of those trendy people, or even a lapel badge with a camera concealed in it if you're an MI5 operative, then come and join us at 6:45pm for the start of what is guaranteed* to be an hour of fun and frolics**.

Afterwards everyone is invited to a drinky somewhere local for a natter and the award of this month's STAR PRIZE, worth a value of up to £1,000,000.

*No actual guarantee, but a very high likelihood.

**Leeds PhotoHunt does not condone excessive frolicking in public places.

Leeds Photohunt and Social

Photohunt isn't just about taking photos. It's about friendly competition whilst at the same time getting to know new people and having fun. Which is why this month we're having the normal photohunt starting at the Town Hall at 6.45pm, then after the usual hour of frantically taking photos we'll be heading to Dock St Market to take part in their quiz.

You can do just the photohunt or just the quiz or both, and you get to pick your own teams. As always it's all free! Hope to see you there!

Eeee I adiyo a hunting we will go

There's a 'normal' Leeds PhotoHunt tomorrow evening! (That's Monday the 2nd of July if you're reading this tomorrow.)

No festival, no requirement to be appreciative of wonderful architecture, you can, should it be your preference, be dull and uncouth for an evening.

You've been meaning to give a PhotoHunt a try for ages. Why not make it this one?

Come to Leeds Railway Station for 6:45. Bring a camera, or just use your camera phone if you want.

We give you a list of 50 words, you head off in small groups (or on your own if you really want!) and see how many interesting photos of the 50 things you can find in an hour.

You're then invited to join us for a drink to compare notes.

Hope to see you there.

Leeds Waterfront Festival 2012

This weekend is Leeds Waterfront Festival and along with all the other entertainment on offer, you can also join in a PhotoHunt while you explore and enjoy.
For those new to PhotoHunt, we give you a list of 50 words and you have to find and take photographs of all of them. Usually there's a time limit, but with the festival being on all weekend, we're letting you have the list so you can explore at your own pace.
You don't have to be a great photographer and the challenge is to come up with creative pictures, but all the words on the list can be found along and around the waterfront walk.
Can you find all 50?
Some are easier than others and we reckon five of them are a real challenge. If you can find all five of the words in capitals, email them to us and there may be a prize for the first one to get all five.
There's also an extra Word of the Weekend. Send us your best picture of that word and the one we think is best will be announced here and on twitter.
The list will be published before the festival, but not too far in advance - we don't want anyone being too keen and starting the hunt early!
In the meantime, check out The Leeds Waterfront Festival website for more details and check back here on Friday for the list and more information.
Any questions, you can reach us on or tweet us @leedsphotohunt
