The "Memories" Photography Project: Win a New Canon EOS 550D

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

We're kicking off our first reader photography project/competition today, giving you the chance to win a brand new Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i). We're looking for you to submit photos on the subject of "Memories", and we'll be putting the best entries up for a reader vote in a few weeks!

The competition is now closed, and we'll be looking through the entries shortly!

The Brief

Submit between one and three photographs on the subject of “Memories”. The topic is wide open to interpretation, so be creative and explore the idea however you’d like. Here are a few ideas:

  • An image that sparks a childhood memory
  • An image that represents a memory you’d still like to have in 10, 20, or 50 year’s time
  • An abstract concept that you feel illustrates the idea or feeling of “memory”

Photographs should be submitted at original, full resolution, and the deadline for entries is Friday 23rd April at 23:00 GMT.

The Prize

The winner of the competition, as chosen by a Phototuts+ community vote, will win a brand new Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i). This is one of Canon's latest entry level DSLR, and has received rave reviews. Featuring an 18 Megapixel sensor, Canon's DIGIC 4 processor, continuous shooting at 3.7fps, and Full HD movie recording, it's a phenomenally impressive piece of kit.

How to Enter

Here are the three items that you need to submit:

  • Your photographs (up to three)
  • A description of 150-350 words for each image, explaining your thinking behind the photograph or the memory that the images rekindle.
  • Your full name and website/portfolio address (if you have one).

We have put together a simple form for submitting your entry. Just click below to upload your images!

  • Competition Now Closed!

We’ll be posting up the entries shortly after the competition closes, letting you browse through all the submissions and vote for your favorites. Full details of this process will be announced nearer the entry deadline.

Best of luck, and we’re really looking forward to seeing what you come up with! If you have any questions about how the process works, you can email
