Closes: 31 August 2020
Positive View Foundation have launched an exclusive national photographic competition for young people entitled Lockdown: Taking a Positive View.
The competition aims to give young people of the UK a voice. While young people are much less likely to suffer from the coronavirus, there has been little consideration of their daily hardships of lockdown; the lack of education, the distancing from friends, worries about the future and potentially difficult situations at home.
‘We hope you’ll find that it’s a good way to: carry on thinking creatively, kick back against boredom and depression and stay motivated to use your skills even though you’re stuck indoors.’
Using either your personal camera or the one on your phone, show us what the lockdown means to you and the impact it is having on your day-to-day life. You can use black and white, colour, or a mix of each, and up to five photographs can be submitted.
Here are a few ideas for starters: life behind your closed doors, a view through your window, street life (or lack of it), masked people. It’s up to you – the brief is totally open to whatever theme you personally want to capture.
How To Enter
Email your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 31 August 2020 to be in with a chance of winning £1000 (first prize), £500 (second prize) or £250 (third prize). Applicants must be aged 16 – 25 and living in the UK. The winning entries and a selection of the runners-up will be exhibited publicly at a later date.
