Southwark Archives: photography and writing competition and workshops
Are you aged 11-17? Have you been taking pictures in the local area? Do you want to write short stories, lyrics or poems that talk about your past year in Southwark?
Our competition is an opportunity for young people to express themselves in relation to where they live, through photography or writing.
First prize: £50 Amazon voucher
Second prize: £30 Amazon Voucher
The top 5 entries will be entered into the archive as a new file called ‘MY HISTORY’ and showcased via our Instagram.
Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23 July 2021
