Instagram Competition #BritishBygones

Fri, 11th Sep, 2015

Competition now closed - Congratulations to @matdalephoto the winner of our #BritishBygones Instagram competition selected by Jon Tonks.



To celebrate our new exhibition Empire by Jon Tonks we are inviting you to take part in our photography competition #BritishBygones.
Take a trip down memory lane and show us how you remember Britain.

Empire explores life on four remote British overseas territories; Ascension Island, St Helena, Tristan da Cunha and the Falkland Islands. Perhaps better known as places of conflict, exile and Darwinian experimentation, Jon Tonks has photographed the people and landscapes of each territory, capturing traces of the past and offering a window into the communities and lifestyle that, despite the distance remain very firmly British.

The dictionary definition of bygone is:

Adjective: belonging to an earlier time

Synonyms: past, former, earlier, one-time, long ago, gone by, previous, forgotten, lost, finished, completed, of old, ancient, antiquated, obsolete, departed, dead, extinct, defunct, out of date, outmoded, passé

Noun: a thing dating from an earlier time

Post pictures of British traditions, forgotten events, British relics and funny signs of our past. We want to see things that were once special and may now be forgotten.

The winner will be selected by Jon Tonks from the top 10 photographs with the most likes on Instagram, and will receive a £50 voucher to spend on their choice of Impressions Gallery’s publications.
