You can also share your photographs of your Untold Heritage with us on Instagram by using #UntoldHeritage #EnglandsNewLenses #AlternativeNarratives and tag  @EH_ShoutOutLoud and @photoworks_uk after you submit. 

We will also share our favourite submissions on English’s Heritage’s Shout Out LoudInstagram and website and our own Instagram stories and website

What is untold heritage? Some ideas from us!

You could submit a photo of:

  • your personal ancestry and family (such as family, ancestry, traditions, etc.)
  • untold heritage (community stories, stories about work, places of significance, community, etc.)
  • future heritage (national conversations like climate change, inequality and housing ect.)

We can’t wait to see the work you create which tells your stories, inspired by your heritage!

Have a look at some resources on our site here too (new link to be added when it is ready)

Working with English Heritage, as part of Shout Out Loud, this project is part of England’s New Lenses which asks young photographers to create new digital photographic artworks exploring their heritage – especially untold heritage.
