NFA Photography Competition

Calling all happy snappers! We want your photos.

We all understand what it means to feel at home, but no two communities are alike. That's why we would love you to show us what makes your street, neighbourhood or community unique.

The brief

We are looking for high quality images that:

  • Showcase what makes your street, neighbourhood or community unique 
  • Challenge the stereotype that housing tenure defines the kind of person we are, what our neighbourhood looks like, the kind of job we have or what we do in our spare time
  • We need high resolution images that will be sharp and clear even when enlarged to A3

One winner will be chosen to receive a £50 Love2shop voucher!

The winner and shortlisted entries will be featured on our website and submitted to The National Federation of ALMO's photography competition, and possibly featured in the 24Housing magazine.

Please send your entires to by midnight on Wednesday 4 March. Make sure you've read the terms and conditions of entry below before submitting your photos.
