Photo Competition

‘Picture a Language’ Easter photo competition

Send us an image of what languages mean to you, with a chance to have it published!


How have languages changed your life?  The MEITS project is looking for black and white photos (minimum 300dpi) for a forthcoming book, and we are asking you to submit images that capture what languages mean to you, whether that means places, people, events or objects.

Your image could be something thought-provoking and inspiring, or humorous and fun.  Be as imaginative as you like! You don’t need to be a professional photographer, or use special equipment. Use your imagination, but make sure you get the permission of any people included in the photo.

We can’t guarantee your image will be selected for publication, but we promise to give careful consideration to everything we receive. Any images chosen for publication will be fully credited.  Entry is open to all. If you are under 18, we will need your parents’ or guardians’ consent for publication.

If languages mean something to you, why not share your images with us and promote the value of languages to a wider audience!

Please submit your image using the form below. The closing date has been extended to 3 May 2019, so get snapping! 

If you have any queries, please email
