WINNERS: My Place Photography Competition 2020

Congratulations to the winners of our My Place Photography Competition 2020 🥳

My Place Photography Competition is a Scotland-wide built environment photography competition for school age young people (4-18).  The theme for the 2020 competition was water, to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters. The 2020 entries amazed the judging panel with creative shots of industrious ports, loch-side cottages, quaint beachfront houses, reflective puddles and more. Thanks to all the young people who participated this year – we received a total of 635 entries!

Entries are divided into primary school age and secondary school age for judging. See the winning photos below and check out our virtual exhibition featuring all of the competition entrants here, access the media release here, and check out a leaflet honouring the winners of the My Place Photography Competition and the shortlisted entries of the My Place Awards here.
