Picfair's Best of Sport for 2017

Themed Collections

11 January 2018

Posted by Philip Mowbray

Once again, 2017 proved to be an exceptional year here at Picfair for sports photography. Across the globe, our 32,000+ network of photographers contributed tens of thousands of unique, passionate and visually stunning images. From photographs of Parkour in Morocco and mud races in the Netherlands to impromptu football matches in the streets of Sao Paolo; Picfair's diversity truly shines through with its images of sporting competitions, athletes, venues and supporters.

One highlight worth mentioning is the series of photographs taken by a triathlete who delved into the Scottish lochs with his camera in tow, to capture wild swimming in action - a sport growing exponentially in popularity: the best image of which appears at the top of our selection. Another is a photojournalist who turns his lens to the fans; where emotions captured speak much louder than any action in the game itself.   

2018 is a bumper year for sport (and in turn will be for sports photography) with 6 Nations Rugby, the Winter Olympics, Wimbledon Championships and the World Cup in Russia all taking place within 6 months of each other.  Whether you're at the heart of the game or prefer to stick to the sidelines, we hope this retrospective of sports photography inspires you for your features ahead.  Sport is at the very core of our culture here at Picfair (read about our sponsorship of Dulwich Hamlet FC here), and we would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to those included in the selection.
