Photography competition

Do you have the talent to capture a great photograph which shows what is unique about your neighbourhood? We'd love to see your photos!

South Tyneside Homes is taking part in this year's National Federation of ALMO (NFA) photography competition.

The theme of the competition is #noplacelikehome, and we are asking South Tyneside Homes tenants to submit high quality photographs to show what defines:

  • the kind of person they are, and
  • the neighbourhood where they live

We all know what it's like to feel "at home" yet no two communities are the same.

Take part in our #noplacelikehome photography competition and show us what makes your community unique.

If your image is shortlisted, we will invite you to attend the NFA photography exhibition and drinks reception on Thursday 30 April 2020 at Hyatt Regency Hotel, Birmingham, where attendees will vote for the winning image.
