Calling all photographers!

We’ve all been spending more time indoors lately, and while some travel and sites are still off-limits, photography gives us the chance to take in the sights and splendours of world archaeology from a distance. Whether you’ve been whiling away the hours looking back at photos from holidays past, venturing out for walks to local sites, or busy working on archaeological projects, we want to see your best recent photos on a heritage theme. Send them to us for your chance to win first prize in our annual CWA Photo Competition, and have your work showcased in the magazine.

The winning image and three runners-up will be featured in CWA. The overall winner will get a free 2-year subscription to the magazine.
