A Small Virtual PhotoHunt

Virtual PhotoHunt is a game anyone, anywhere can play via twitter.

We announce a word. Your task is to take a picture relating to that word. Think laterally, think logically, don't think at all - it's up to you. Photos will be judged on composition and creativity, not technical merit, so feel free to snap away with your cameraphone as much as a £2000 DSLR.

Once you're happy with your picture, email it to, post it to Twitter either mentioning @leedsphotohunt or hashtag it #LVPH, or post it to our Flickr group.

The best ones will be ReTweeted and posted on this blog.

The word this time is "SMALL" and this week you have until 6pm on Sunday to enter.

The winner, chosen on a complicated and unquestionable basis by us, receives a unique yet almost entirely worthless certificate but it does include a free drink at the next walking PhotoHunt you get to!

A quick reminder that the next one is on Monday at 6pm. See the previous blog for details.

Good luck

In some ways, everyone who entered the Leeds Virtual PhotoHunt last week was a winner, but in a more real, actually winning way, it was KarolineK with her interpretation of Metamorphosis who was successful.

Here it is for you to go "ooh clever" at.

Karoline has been sent a surprisingly professional looking certificate, together with the money-can-buy prize of a drink on us at a future PhotoHunt.

This Friday there will be another word announced and as its a bank holiday weekend, you have a WHOLE WEEKEND to find that perfect picture.

The photogenic weekend will culminate in a walking PhotoHunt, around Leeds City Centre, starting from the Museum steps at 6pm.

An hour of hunting for that perfect photo of as many of the list we give you as possible. It's creativity over quantity, but the list has been completed by a team in the past - can you match them?

Whether you get one stunning photo or 50 half-arsed ones, it's then off to the pub for a drink and to see who's won the star prize as Master of the Hunt.

Watch out for the unveiling of the word on Friday and hopefully see you on Monday too.
