Photo competition

Enter the Museum of the Year Photography competition – a chance to photograph your local finalist museum and win great prizes.

We're looking for the best photos that capture our Museum of the Year 2015 finalists.

Whether you’re an experienced photographer or a smartphone snapper, send us a photo – the more creative, the better! Take a look at last year's winning pictures.

Legendary Magnum photographer Martin Parr will help us to shortlist six photographers – one for each museum – and then a public vote will decide the ultimate winner.

Martin Parr: 'With strange objects, striking buildings and hoards of visitors, museums are wonderful places to capture on camera. We’re calling for Britain’s amateur photographers to celebrate six of the nation’s finest museums and send us snapshots that showcase the Museum of the Year shortlist.'

First prize:

  • A fantastic photography holiday to Berlin, courtesy of Frui Creative Holidays and Courses.
  • £500 of Calumet vouchers, so you can treat yourself to some new camera equipment.

All six shortlisted photographers will win:

Museum of the Year Photography Prize is a BBC Arts Get Creative champion. Get Creative aims to boost creativity in the UK, as well as celebrating the millions of people already doing something artistic and creative every day.
