My Place Awards & Photography 2022 open for entries

The 2021 My Place Awards and My Place Photography Competition are both open for entries!

The My Place Photography Competition is a Scotland-wide built environment photography competition for school age young people (4-18). If you’re a teacher, home educator or leader of a youth group, having your young people participate in the competition encourages them to explore their local area and experiment with using photography as a means of creative expression. The competition also links to multiple experiences and outcomes identified in Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence, and all entries to the competition will be featured in a public exhibition. The deadline for entries is 20th February 2022 (please note that this has been extended from the original deadline of 6 February).

The My Place Awards celebrate community-led built environment projects that have transformed their locality. Eligible projects include new buildings, historic buildings or monuments that have been reused or refurbished, designed public realm schemes (streetworks, parks) and designed landscapes (gardens, public green spaces). The Awards are a great opportunity to showcase a project’s success to the community, stakeholders and funders by receiving much-deserved exposure and media attention. The deadline for entries is 13th February 2022 (please note that this has been extended from the original deadline of 6 February).
