On My Doorstep: Photo Contest

The past few months have certainly been unusual for us all, with the change in lifestyle meaning many of us have had more free time on our hands.

Through On My Doorstep, our latest photography competition, we’re inviting you to share the best of your surroundings – we’re looking for snapshots of what you’ve seen, heard and experienced both over the past few months and as these unprecedented times continue.

From at-home family photoshoots to scenic walks in the countryside, your challenge is to share the essence of lockdown life in your local area captured on camera. Read on to see how you can get involved!

This competition is now closed.

Get Behind the Lens

We’ve long advocated for photography as a hobby that boosts wellbeing, so we have been delighted to see so many people picking up a camera during lockdown to document beautiful moments and memories made during these different times.

Picking up your camera or smartphone and taking a few snaps is a wonderful mood-booster, as is looking back on your treasured photos, which is why we’re encouraging you to get behind the lens and capture some of the special little moments in everyday life that make you smile! Why not capture some snaps of a pet doing something silly or a candid moment with family?

Share Your Lockdown Photography

Have you been on a walk or cycle ride recently? If so, we’re willing to bet you snapped a picture or two!

Pause for a moment and take some time to reminisce by looking back through your gallery or camera roll. What pictures have you taken that showcase what you’ve been up to the past few months?

Chances are, your #OnMyDoorstep entry has already been taken! Scan through your images for unique and interesting perspectives, visuals and snapshots that you’ve captured. Think you’ve got your winning entry? Submit it now! If not, don’t fear – read on for some guidance on how to capture the perfect snap…

What Makes a Great Photo?

Stuck for inspiration or unsure what to enter? Here are a few ideas to help you capture everyday life on your doorstep!

Life in Lockdown

These unprecedented times have given rise to all kind of strange, out-of-the-ordinary moments that we would otherwise not have experienced. Share a moment symbolic of these times as a snapshot of your daily life.

Nature at Work

Throughout this period, we’ve all spent some extra time at home and in our local surroundings. The beauty of nature photography is that you don’t need to venture far to get a spectacular shot! Keep an eye out in your garden or local park for wildlife to capture on camera.

A Moment in Time

With many of us taking the time to get involved in family activities and create our own fun in the comfort of our own homes, why not pick up your camera and document the daily goings on within your household? No matter how normal the activity may seem, there is beauty to be found in our everyday lives.
