My Place Photography

My Place Photography is a Scotland-wide heritage photographic competition and awards ceremony for school-age young people aged 4-18.  It encourages young people to look at and explore their built environments in a creative way, developing an understanding of the places around them, all through the medium of photography.

Teachers, home educators, group leaders can register as members to submit photographic entries on our My Place Photography Awards  website, where they can also get competition guidance and learning resources, and have access to galleries from previous years to gain inspiration for future entries.

Finalists receive an award and a print of their photos at a joint awards ceremony with the My Place Awards.  The awards ceremony usually takes place in April in Glasgow. To learn more or to enter go to
