Creative Manchester: International Photography Competition, 21 March–25 April 2020, free entry - Visit now

Creativity can have a profound effect on wellbeing – especially in times as uncertain as these. So while you’re cooped up at home, why not get creative with your phone camera, and enter Creative Manchester’s International Photography Competition – you could win £1000.

Presented with the Manchester China Institute at the University of Manchester, this competition asks a simple question: What does family mean to you?

Is it love? Support? Or maybe responsibility? Whatever springs to mind, try to capture it in a photo! Or if, like us, you’ve got a phone chock-a-block with photos, have a rifle through and see if anything jumps out! In either case, this is a great chance to reflect on something that seems more important by the day: family.

The competition is open to anyone resident in the UK or China, and there are TWO top prizes of £1000 / 8,888 RMB up for grabs, besides a People’s Choice Award of £500.

All submissions should be emailed to with the subject line ‘What does family mean to you?’. In the body of the email, you should include an accompanying title and a narrative caption, as well as your name and country of residence.

Before submitting, make sure to check out the full competition rules:

Best of luck!
