Competition Time – Object

Congratulations to last week’s winner of our #home photo competition, Sally Nordan (@salnordanphoto)! Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to send in their entries.

This week’s theme – object - is inspired by photographer and artist Jon Pountney. The subject of Jon’s project for Many Voices, One Nation is the Welsh Youth Parliament, established in 2018 to provide young people a voice in Welsh politics. Jon photographed his subjects, along with an object they had each brought from home that held some significance to them. We’d like you to find and photograph an object within your home that means a lot to you.

Don’t forget to visit Many Voices, One Nation online here:
