Parliament­ary photo contest deadline extended


The deadline for submission­s to Parliament’s photograph­y competitio­n has been extended to 21 October. The contest did not take place last year following the death of MP Sir David Amess, who was organising the event as chair of the All-Party Parliament­ary Group for Photograph­y when he was murdered.

New APPG chair Tim Loughton is organising this year’s competitio­n as a tribute to his late colleague. It will feature the 10 entries Amess had already submitted, along with photos from the late Labour MP Austin Mitchell, also a former chair of the APPG, who died in 2021.

The competitio­n is open to all sitting Members of the House of Commons and the Lords, and any Member can enter up to 10 digital photos in colour or black and white. There is no theme, and the photos can be recent or old. The House magazine, along with the Associatio­n of Photograph­ers, will help to organise an exhibition of the winning entries. Loughton said: “It’s great to see the competitio­n back and it promises to be better than ever, so get snapping!” Submission­s should be entered through the portal, which can only be accessed using a parliament­ary email address. Those with questions should email Loughton at loughtont@parliarmen­
