This year’s creative competition's are linked to the Book of Deer returning to the North-East of Scotland for the first time in approximately 1000 years. Images and Doodles in the book reflect culture and society and can tell us a lot of what life was like in this area at that time.
You are invited to capture an image of day-to-day life, society, culture, or landscape, that if the image was found 1000 years from now, it would tell a story of life in Aberdeenshire in 2022.
You'll have the option to submit your image via email, along with a voice recording of no more than 20 seconds long describing your image (voice recording is optional), and why you think this would reflect life in Aberdeenshire 2022. You can also drop off images with the entry form to your local library.
Pre School children are invited to draw a picture to tell a story about what life is like in Aberdeenshire in 2022.
