The Theatre Photograph of the Year competition is now open to amateur and professional photographers and there is a category specifically for people like you!
Perhaps you’re a budding photographer with the latest kit who’s always snapping away, or maybe you’re just somebody that thinks they can take a decent shot on their phone.
Whatever your level of skill, enter and you could win £250 worth of Theatre Tokens, which can be spent in more than 250 theatres across the country!
There will even be an exhibition of winners and runners up at the National Theatre in London.
What are the categories?
There are three categories – you can enter one photo in each:
- Beautiful buildings – photographs highlighting the wonderful architecture of theatre buildings, old or modern, small or grand. This could be the exterior of a building, an inside space or a particular design detail.
- Connecting communities – photographs celebrating how theatres are central to their communities. This could be a theatre shown as part of its local area or how the theatre brings people together.
- Entertaining evenings – photographs capturing the joy of going to the theatre. This could be the excitement of a performance or a lively bar / café before a show. Matinee photos are welcome too!
From the category winners, one image will be chosen as the overall Theatre Photograph of the Year.
How can I enter?
Entrants should submit a high resolution photograph, along with a short description of the image, explaining the story behind it or what that theatre means to them, using the online entry form on the Theatre Trust website.
The deadline for entries is 23:59 on 30 March 2020.
What are the rules?
- Your photo should have been taken in the last 12 months.
- You should have permission from the people in the photo or the location it’s of before you submit it.
