Take a photo that captures beauty in your everyday life at home and share it with COLOURS of Edinburgh. Though these times are tough, especially for those more vulnerable amongst it, there can be beauty in isolation and we invite you to show us what that looks like. It may be a daily ritual like praying or cooking dinner, an object, a room that changes your mood, or even a certain time of day.

The Competition

The winner will receive a £100 cash prize, along with further opportunities to showcase their work. 

Second place will receive £50.

Third place will receive £25. 

Both runners-up will be given the opportunity to display their submissions on our platforms. 

This competition is open to people from refugee and newcomer backgrounds in the UK and Europe.

Submissions close 31st June 2020 and we will notify the winner on 2nd July 2020.
