Platinum Jubilee Photography Competition

Platinum Jubilee Photography Competition

19 May 2022

We’re running a photography competition to capture the 2022 Platinum Jubilee celebrations. You can get involved (and maybe win a great prize too!) by submitting an image that captures your experience.

Are you having a street party, a get together with family and friends to watch the national celebrations on the television, a fancy dress or special event?

This is a chance for you to get your camera or mobile phone out and capture a moment in history.

Competition categories

The competition is open to all ages and there are four different categories:

  • 10 years and under
  • 11-19 years
  • Over 20s
  • Best Jubilee Selfie

A winner from each category will receive a gift voucher to spend in The Box shop and free membership to The Box for a year.

We’ll share the images on The Box’s website and social media channels. Best of all, they’ll be added to our archives as a permanent record of how Plymouth celebrated the 2022 Platinum Jubilee and to support future research, exhibitions and displays.

How do I submit my image?

  • Your image should be sent as a jpeg or TIFF file
  • It should be 300dpi and as high resolution as you can achieve
  • Please provide a title, short description (maximum 70 words), your full name and category (10 years and under, 11-19 years, Over 20s or Best Jubilee Selfie) with your image
  • If you're submitting an image that features a person or people it should be accompanied by a signed consent form - you can download one below
  • Please send your image (and consent form if appropriate) to our Collections Team
  • Please title your message ‘Platinum Jubilee Photography Competition’
  • If your image is a large file please send it using wetransfer

Closing date

The closing date for the competition is 5pm on Sunday 12 June 2022. Good luck!
