St Mary Magdalene’s Project is offering all those happy snappers out there the chance to participate in our first Instagram Photography Competition. The winner will receive a £25 Amazon Voucher and your photo will be featured in our next Heritage Exhibition.

The theme for this photography competition is “Your Local Heritage” with photos being of your favorite place in the area. The task is to capture your local heritage and by that we mean the traditions, buildings and parks, special places, and community life. Anything or anywhere that has significance for you and the local community and makes this area the place it is. So grab your smartphone and show us what cultural heritage means to you!

To participate, post a photo with the #myheritageW2 hashtag on your public Instagram profile. Tag @marymagspad in your post and tell us what’s in the photo, and why it’s significant to you or your local area.

Everyone can participate in this competition, from professional photographers to amateurs.

Entry now open and you have until the 25th of June to upload your images on Instagram using our hashtag and tagging us.
