Drag to set position!

Bruce Tate @ IHR ADMIN April 26, 2013
We're looking for photographers with a passion for local history. Inns, churches, castles, industry and infrastructure...it's your choice. Just make sure that the subject of your photo has historical significance locally and dates back earlier than 1900.

Share your photos through our Flickr Image contest, and we may feature it (with a full credit of course) on the British History Online home page at www.british-history.ac.uk

Group Description

Help us to celebrate our 10th anniversary by entering our photography competition. We're looking for photographers whose passion for photography is matched by their interest in local history.

We can't offer big prizes but the winning photo will appear on the BHO home page for a month, guaranteeing exposure amongst the historical community; not only that, but you'll be helping to improve the look and feel of the site as well with some great images.

Contributions could include your own photos of places of historic interest, or copies of old photographs that give an insight into the past. You must, however, own the copyright in any photo that you submit, and explain why the photo is relevant to the group.

British History Online is the digital library containing some of the core printed primary and secondary sources for the medieval and modern history of the British Isles. Launched in summer 2003, it serves the learning, teaching and research needs of over 200,000 unique visitors per month.

Group Rules

Please ensure that each photograph has historical significance locally and its subject dates back earlier than 1900.

Finally, you must own the copyright in any photo that you submit, and explain why the photo is relevant to the group.

PS please can users place their photos on their “Flickr map” to ensure that they have accurate geographical co-ordinates.
