Attention, photographers! The annual Capture Kingston photography competition is back, running until the 31st December 2023, inviting photography enthusiasts to wield their cameras in the name of the environment. The Capture Kingston competition is sponsored by the Friends of Kingston Museum and Heritage Service, in collaboration with Kingston Council and this year joined by Kingston Rotary in their Centennial year. The competition was also established in memory of Les Kirkin, ensuring Kingston’s photographic collection lives on and records the ever-changing history of the borough.
Each year, Capture Kingston adopts a theme that holds relevance to the community and the wider world – this year’s theme is ‘Environment’. Against the backdrop of a changing climate and the urgent need for sustainable practices, this theme encourages photographers to capture Kingston’s relationship with its natural surroundings. Whether you’re focusing your lens on a bustling street corner or a quiet corner of a park, every snap contributes to the preservation of Kingston’s environment.
What makes Capture Kingston truly special is its lasting impact. Every submission becomes a part of Kingston’s Local History Collection, ensuring that the visual narratives of today become the heritage of tomorrow. Your photographs won’t just capture moments; they’ll become time capsules that future generations can explore, learn from, and draw inspiration from.
So, pick up your camera, explore Kingston’s every corner, and let your lens capture the beauty and challenges of the environment that surrounds us. Your photographs, your stories, and your vision will shape the history of Kingston for generations to come. To enter and read the terms and conditions, check out the website here.
