The Mind Membership Photography Competition

Calling all photographers! Have your photo featured in the Mind calendar. 

Mind has launched a photography competition exclusively for our amazing members.

We know how having a creative side can positively impact our mental health, especially during this pandemic. So we’re inviting you to get your creative juices flowing and cameras snapping by entering our inaugural Mind Membership Photography Competition.

Join our membership community

The theme of the competition is ‘Through my lens’ and we’re looking for stunning images inspired by your own mental health and wellbeing journey. It’s a snapshot of your story; what you see through your lens.

The theme is open to your personal interpretation. It could be a special place you go to when you’re struggling with your mental health. A hobby that has had a positive impact on your wellbeing. Or maybe a pet that has helped you through difficult times. It might be a snapshot of a moment or emotion that sums up your journey. Or perhaps an event or object. It can be literal or metaphorical. In black and white or colour. It’s your journey, your filter, your lens.

John Mac Crossan, Mind Membership Manager, says:

“I’m always amazed by how creative our Mind members are and by the lived experience stories represented in the art that members share with us. You don’t necessarily need professional equipment to be a great photographer – with camera phones that fit in our pockets, virtually all of us are just one click away from telling our story.”

Prizes include:

The winner and two runners-up will have their photos featured in the Mind 2022 calendar, which is delivered to around 40,000 of our supporters. Plus…

1st prize: A framed print of your photo, £50 Love2Shop Voucher, Hold Still photography book and a Mind goodie bag.
Runners-up: Hold Still photography book and a Mind goodie bag.
