A Year in the Life of Folkestone 2020

Photographic challenge recording the life of the town in 365 days.

How to take part | Contributors | Partners | Jury | Photos | Media 

Given the situation caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the future of “A Year in the Life of Folkestone” is uncertain. Contributors are still taking photographs if only from inside their homes.
We are working on finding a way so the project continues. Stay in touch for further updates. In the meantime, stay safe. Thank you for your understanding.


The idea behind this community photography project is to record and showcase a year in the life of Folkestone through 365 photographs taken by residents and visitors, one for each day, between 1st January and 31st December 2020.

Contributors will be encouraged to capture how they live, work and play, events taking place in the area, but also hidden activities that not everyone notices or gets a chance to see. Remember, in many years in the future, people will look back on this record of life. What would we like to tell them?

The project is open to all photographers, amateurs and professionals.

The project will culminate in an exhibition from 14th to 23rd May 2021 at the The Brewery Tap UCA Project Space and a book will be published (providing funding allows).
