Lockdown: Taking a Positive View

FIRST PRIZE £1000
SECOND PRIZE £500
THIRD PRIZE £250

CLOSING DATE 31st AUGUST 2020

At Positive View we believe that the voice of young people has been silenced during the coronavirus crisis. It's assumed that the young people are doing ok, as they are much less likely to suffer or die from the disease. But it doesn't take into account the daily hardships of lockdown, of no education, of not hanging out with your friends, of missed opportunities, of worries about the future and of potentially difficult situations at home. Well, we want to give the young people of the UK their voices back, so we have launched an exclusive national photographic competition, funded by The Arts Council, entitled ‘Lockdown: Taking a Positive View’.

All you need to be eligible to enter is to be aged 16-25, to be living in the UK, and to have a great idea for up to five picture that really sum up what life’s like for you in these challenging Covid-19 times. The competition has been designed and launched by the young people we work with and support. And as well as the chance to win one of our cash prizes, we also 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. Plus, the winning entries - and a large selection of the best runners up, will be exhibited publicly once lockdown is over.

Your entries need to be received by the organisers, Positive View Foundation, at the email address below, by the closing date - 31st August 2020 but we will also be running a series of webinars with renowned photographers so you can learn from the best before submitting your winning entry. More details of these will be made available to you soon, once you have registered your details with us.
