Inspired by Camden

As part of our Camden50 celebrations we’re holding a photography competition in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery. Together, we’re inviting you to share photos that capture what the borough means to you – or what it has meant to you over the past 50 years.

There are three categories:

  • I live in Camden
  • Portraits of Camden
  • Past Camden

Three winners will be selected in each category, and will be displayed at an exhibition in Camden in the autumn. One winner will be chosen to feature on the cover of the Camden magazine. Each winner will also receive a pair of tickets, or family ticket, to Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon at the National Portrait Gallery.

Selected images will be shared on the National Portrait Gallery website, through the Gallery’s social media channels and projected in the Gallery at Late Shift, on Thursday 1 October 2015.

How to enter

Email your photo to and tell us:

  • which category you’re entering
  • why your photo captures what Camden means to you, in no more than 100 words
  • your name, address, and phone number.

Or share your photos of Camden using the hashtags #CreativeConnections and #Camden50 on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

Caption your photos with a title, your full name and the category you’re entering. Please note: if your social media account is set to private, we will not be able access your entry.

You can also enter by post. Send a print of your photo, along with the details above, to:

Tenant and Leaseholder Engagement Team, Floor 3 5PS

Unfortunately we won’t be able to return printed entries.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Tuesday 15 September 2015.

If you’re taking a photograph of a person, always make sure you get their consent beforehand, or their parent or guardian’s consent if they are under 16.
