#MuseumSummer2022 photo competition

What are you doing this summer?

From crafts and collages to tours and trails, we know you’ll be getting stuck into museums and their activities this summertime.

We’d love to see what you’re getting up to, so we’re inviting you to share your experiences with us in our #MuseumSummer2022 photo competition across Twitter and Instagram.

At the end of the competition, we’ll pick one winning organisation and one winning individual to receive membership prizes – 10% off your organisation’s institutional membership, and free essential individual membership respectively.

We can’t wait to see your entries – let #MuseumSummer2022 begin!

How to enter

To enter, simply post a photo of one of your summery museum activities on Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #MuseumSummer2022. If you’re an organisation, this could be an activity or programme you’re running, and if you’re an individual, this could be an exhibition or event you visited.

We’ll be looking at your entries throughout August, and the deadline for submitting entries is 11.59pm on Friday 2 September 2022.

Competition rules

We will pick two winners after the closing date of the competition:

You can enter as many times as you’d like, with as many photos as you’d like.

If you submit photos to the competition, we may ask you if we can use those photos for our future marketing and communications materials.

Last year’s winners

Organisation winner: Rugby Art Gallery and Museum
A young boy holds a piece of artwork he's created to resemble a piece of art

We loved this photo of someone very proudly showing us their artwork as inspired by a piece that’s already on display at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum. An artist for a future exhibition, perhaps?

Organisation winner: Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter
Three children smiling and holding decorative masks

We’re thrilled to see collections inspiring children’s crafts in this picture from RAMM’s ‘make a mask’ activity, drawing upon the museum’s World Cultures collection.

Individual winner: Mark Cobain
A group of young people gather to take part in a creative activity

Everyone looks like they’re hard at work in this snap at the Cartoon Museum, London – what a fun setting for creating your own artworks!

Individual winner: Joanna Harrison
A man dressed as a knight riding a horse and jousting

Anyone for jousting? We love this action shot from a Tudor-inspired scene at Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds.
