Thames Lens Competition

Capture the river in this year’s photo competition

The Thames Festival Trust, in partnership with the Port of London Authority, is launching its annual photography competition inviting people to capture the Thames Unlocked. Thames Lens encourages amateur photographers to seek out the life, industry, culture, sports and more that the Thames is home to.

This year’s theme is: Thames Unlocked. The Thames was largely deserted for many weeks, apart from essential port operations ensuring supplies of food, fuel and medicine. Now, the river is slowly starting to come back to life as restrictions ease. As it opens up to more activity, participants are encouraged to explore and share the perspectives that the Thames offers through photography.

Prizes will include photography courses, exhibition tickets, vouchers and more. Participants can enter via email or via Instagram, and there is also an Under 25 Category. The competition closes to entries on Friday 29 January 2021.
